Star Citizen Crowdfunding Hits $29M

The Roberts Space Industries website announces that the crowd-sourced fundraising for Star Citizen as the PC space combat game has now passed the $29 million mark. This triggers a new stretch goal, and it seems their imaginations are losing pace with the funding, as this just promises to spend it, as "additional funding for the Squadron 42 single–player experience," and this new trailer offers an explanation of the game's single-player experience. Here's word on how fans can help with the writer's block for their next stretch goal, if it hasn't been reached already by the time this is posted: "Now it’s time for you to pick the $32 million stretch goal ship. We’ve removed the winner and the lowest-performing option from the last poll. What will it be now? A massive cargo hauler, a speedy information runner, a dedicated salvage ship? The choice is in your hands!"

Since the trademark is still owned by EA, he would NOT be able to use that name without buying it or paying A LOT of money to EA since they are some of the greediest bastards.
Firstly, there is no evidence that this fictional company in any way infringes upon EA's trademarks - it is called 'Origin Jumpworks' not simply 'Origin' and it is a non-trading entity (i.e. it's not a real business). Secondly, we have absolutely no idea of the licensing arrangements between private companies - it could be that even if there was a conflict that EA would waive any potential licensing fee in exchange for non-exclusive distribution rights on Origin.

Do you think that Chris Roberts would really pick a name that would deliberately infringes on EA just so he could have over large amounts of money to them? The game is early enough in development that he could simply rename it. Honestly, some of the people around here need to up their meds.
