Quote from: RollingStone on March 04, 2010, 11:14:47 AMI recently sent an email to Ken Williams via his blog at www.kensblog.com, informing him about the C&D and asking for his support. Here's his response! I know that it sounds pessimistic, but keep in mind that at the time, neither of us were aware of the Save TSL Movement that was beginning to form:"I would love to get involved, but there's nothing I can do. Neither Roberta nor I own any rights to Kings Quest. I advised the team way back at the start of the project not to use Kings Quest without the company's permission. Apparently they sought, and received, permission – so, I don't understand how they are now being stopped.Feel free to ask the group to contact me, but I'm not sure what I can do. -Ken W" So feel free to contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org. I read that he signed the petition and that's great. It would be nice if we could get his name on a letter as well. Someone as high-profile as he is could have a lot of influence.
QuoteAt least somene has contact with the Willians!Since Ken ask the group to contact him hopefgully the group can plan this carefully especially game name, art works and related information.We know that Ken has no right with KQ but I am certain that He knows information as I ready stated!

(he says as much himself) A good deal of former Sierra employees have been directly or indirectly involved with the fangame community at some point the last decade, but with the possible exception of Josh Mandel, most also prefer to a low profile.The unspoken policy of the fangame community has usually been; "Don't drag the former Sierra staff into the thick of things unless they want to be there". Ken and Roberta were never directly involved with the TSL team. I'm expecting them not to be directly involved with the Save TSL team either. Ken left the computer games business a long time ago. I don't think he has more influence than any other retired businessman.

I think it would be more effective if there are more than just one face and voice in the video; so if any of you want to help out, please record a short (under a 30 seconds) personal account about what King's Quest means to you and announce your support for the release of TSL.My email address is email@example.comI hope to release this video sometime this next week so please send your clips in ASAP and also send me an email in advance so I know to expect one from you!Video format and quality don't really matter as long as we can see and understand you!I'd prefer mp4 or mov because they're easiest for me to work with, but wmv is also fine.Thanks and if you are unable to contribute a clip, please pass along this information to anyone who you think can. Long live TSL.Again, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org you can send direct any questions for me there to ensure I receive them.

Anyway, as we were talking, he said his nephew-in-law worked for places like Sony and Activision. After explaining TSL's situation, I asked his nephew's name. Turns out he was contracted out to Activision and has no influence...oh well. I tried Small world, huh?
