WHAT legal risk?
Is it the fact that the name is similar to the Mattel(tm) name?
Is it that the game follows the same ruleset as Microsoft(tm) Reversi?
Is it that the graphics are reminiscent of somethng you would have expected
to see on the ZX81(tm) version?
I am genuinely intrigued to know - we don't have to debate the finer
legal-ese of it, I'm just fascinated as to what it is that I seem to have
missed.

Cheers,

BC
