Quoted from lamihh:
Licensing is obviously a big deal, and while these types of things have simply been accepted in the past, indie pinball (yes, I'm going to keep calling it that) is potentially a completely different beast altogether. Gathering copyright and likeness permissions is a huge, daunting process, but is very rewarding in the end. That being said, this is something you need to have reasonably taken care of before making any major announcements or commitments, and we've done a lot of work and spent countless hours making sure everyone involved is happy with how things turned out. I have many stories I could tell here, but I think I will wait until a time when there's a little less actual news to catch up on At any rate, I can see how one might wonder if a small indie startup would be able to handle this sort of task, but it is certainly not an issue over here. Don't expect any wild omissions or absences when you open up your first Skit-B new-in-box!
From Kevin, Skit-B just 11 Weeks ago.
I cannot believe that there is no license as the podcast comes to that potential conclusion. This would mean that Skit-B was not honest and I simply don't believe that Kevin has written such a clear Statement without having a license. I hope that there will be clarity soon.
There is literally nothing said in that statement that's a definitive "We have everything taken care of." There are a lot of weasel words used/marketing speak without committing to anything tangible.
