The time has come. When the leaders of our industry put something wonderful in motion, those of us a tad lower down in the boardgame world take notice. We watch to see how things go for them, how well the public receives the changes, and then we make our move based on that.

Clearly, Games Workshop knows how to handle their place as a top-dog in the gaming industry. Their Cease & Desist notice towards BGG has strengthened their position as boardgame leaders, and created mounds of goodwill for their company. Even if they put out crap for the next ten years, people will remember their fine business choices, and buy games anyway.

My mother always told me to dress for the job you want, not for the job you have, so I'm dressing up like Games Workshop today, and breaking out my own Cease & Desist notice:

Board Game Geek,

As the designer of Zombie in my Pocket (PnP), and Zombie in my Pocket (CGF), I demand that you cease and desist publishing any images of people with pockets, in order to protect my intellectual property.

Your loving geek,
Jeremiah

Just because it's not on your shirt doesn't mean it's not a pocket. Baby pocket. You should be ashamed.

It's embarrassing how far people will go to break the law. Is this what you want? Is this the future of the gaming industry?! We must stop these offenses before they go any further!

You can't even use pockets to promote my games. That would be wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Don't you people realize that these games are mine? My games, you can buy them, but after that, they're still mine, and you aren't supposed to do anything else with them.

And how about the new "pocket" version of this one? Mine is underway, and from then on I will have Pickomino in my pocket every day devil

You should also extend your request to include the removal of photos of people with fanny packs, because what are fanny packs, but large, portable pockets that you can add to any outfit.
