Here's the link to the docket.

To save time sifting through the material, here are some significant links the:

Amended Complaint.

Joint Status Report.

Answer to Amended Complaint.


TL,DR
Phoenix hawk, Marauder/ Marauder2c, Warhammer, Archer and Rifleman may become unseen once more.
The Atlas, Locust, and Shadow Hawk may(though highly unlikely) meet the same fate.

Well, some of the initial images look similar, but trying to say the following ones do becomes farcical at best. The Locust really doesn't look anything like the robot in the comparison image; neither does the Atlas.

I suspect the most telling sentence was the one which said that Harmony Gold were considering any warrior robot design to be a derivative of their earlier work - essentially trying to claim that anyone who created a universe with robot warriors in it would be infringing on their trademarks and IP.

Imagine if a composer tried to say that all music composed within their genre was a derivative of their work and thus infringed their copyrighted material.

I noted that the projected trial date was September 2018 - with discovery until April 2018. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens.

Bugger, I thought they reached an agreement. To be fair HG do own the designs, cant remember exact drama.

ok - primary objective

email them pictures of either your penis or butthole with "unseen mechs" drawn in there for good measure

redacted - I can't be held responsible for what you all may/may not do...

Instead of pushing its stuff around all over the place, the lizard puts its stuff in one place and stays there. It only picks up and moves when it sees something useful and desirable, or when something distressing and undesirable shows up."
