So far, for guilds i've come up with just two..

Hyrule, or Hero Of Time, it would look like this:

*Link (Hero Of Time)
*Link (Hyrule)

Hero Of Time as a friend said is more singular, and Hyrule is more for people can join i guess? I don't know, still thinking about it i guess, any ideas would be great. Just need a guild and i'm going to make a global one. Need some ideas!
Thanks!

None.
Graal doesn't need anymore lawsuits. Think of something else.

I don't know if that's fully true.. Turks is a global guild and it's been a global guild for a very long time, it's from a video game.. And those were examples anyway.

I'll upgrade my "Sheik" account and we'll have a ball.

And those were examples anyway.That may be true, but Turks are, by definition, the inhabitants of Turkey (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkey). I can't see it being too easy to copyright the term "Turks".

I believe there was an argument about this a few years ago after all the "copyrighted material" (Link and Yoshi heads, a lot of guilds, etc.) were being removed.

Technically, the name Turkey came from the people known as the Turks. Who actually migrated to Europe from the western Tibet area. They entered the Europe/Middle East area around the Northern Caspian sea region. Then they moved south.

These Turks were very Xenophobic, ergo they closed their borders and Jerusalem to all forgieners. This sparked a series of wars that we call the Crusades.

In fact, I'll bet you $1,000,000 that Stefan wont accept any guild!

This is making minimal sense to me.
So he can have the account "Link" without worry of Graal Online being pushed under a lawsuit, yet he can't go about having a guild (from the same game series) with it? And don't you think if Nintendo, or whomever would 'sue' the company, even really recognized Graal Online, they'd kick the case up a notch and maybe go for copying their whole game concept? I'm not ragging on Graal at all, I'm just trying to justify why two wrongs make a wrong, but one wrong makes a... well, I'm not sure.

Just wondering, is Link actually copyrighted?

Is "Hyrule" or "Hero of Time" actually copyrighted? I know only as much as the next person...

When someone's name is Link, it doesn't generally mean that person is acting like that character. I know when I make accounts I name them according to my interests/jokes related to graal.

When you look like a person from another video game and want to create something like "Hero of Time", that's wrong.

Been there. Done that. Happened a long time ago. Just Google for "Zelda Online" and you'll see why.
The Graal Online we see today, while having its origins in Zelda Online, is nothing like it anymore. Thus, no grounds for a lawsuit.

Oh, and dead thread.
