UPDATED: Mega Man Rock Band, The Protomen, Sent Cease and Desist by Capcom
Posted on Sunday, July 24 @ 18:19:07 Eastern by Daniel Bischoff[UPDATE] I'm being informed that the e-mail I saw from a lawyer to The Protomen is most likely a fake. We are in the Internet age, I suppose. I'm still feeling depressed. What does this say about Capcom that I so readily believed it?
[ORIGINAL STORY] You know, I gave all of this a pass. Frankly, I haven't bought a copy of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 yet. I wasn't planning on it. The Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D stuff didn't really bother me either. Mega Man Legends 3 getting canceled... OK, I was a little miffed because any time someone says, "Sorry, this is a game you won't be able to buy for your 3DS, but we know you were looking forward to giving us your money, but no we're just not going to take it, you'll have to play more Nintendo games, I know you were going to do that already but now you're going to have to do that even harder, also we just don't want your money because we're stupid"... I get kind of pissed.
Now I'm really upset. Longtime fanboy rock-and-roll group The Protomen, known for covering Mega Man songs and like, totally rocking sh** out and probably making absolutely sh** money have been ordered to "Cease and Desist" by Capcom. Mega Man level boss "Lawyer Man" Derek K Yu sent the following to The Protomen:
The letter goes on to detail the startling amounts of money Capcom would sue The Protomen for should they continue making their music, doing their thing, otherwise rocking sh** out while also paying tribute to Mega Man.
The Protomen have stated that they will fight the good fight, but ultimately I'm feeling more depressed than ever with Capcom. I'm going to go check my rights to make sure Capcom can't sue me should I have anything bad to say about them. I'll let you know what I find. Please use the anonymity of our comments section to share your thoughts.
I'll just say... if you rock sh** out and like Mega Man, you'd better stop right now.
