Hi to you all, and may the force be with you.

So, I already started developing a game based on Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds. I am doing so with a different engine and many other different things. This game is thought to be Free and Open Source. But, having the background on how LucasFilms and Disney have operated related to copyright stuff, I am affraid. How much experience and ideas have you guys about legal matters on fan-based games? When we make mods for SWGB does it mean that we are also on a gray line of the law? For example, I see that here in heaven, it is being used an X-Wing, the Star Wars Fonts and more SW-related content, so how far does the legal stuff goes? Have anyone have had problems so far with this here?

I would really appreciate your impresions about this.

This game is pretty ancient, and I doubt there are any significant legal risks when it comes to modding it. Fan games can go either way depending on how litigious the IP holder is.
