While Nintendo continues to treat its biggest fans like criminals, competitor Sega recognizes the value of fan goodwill and free promotion, and embraces fan projects.
One of the people involved in developing a 3D Sonic game called Green Hill Paradise Act 2 was nicely surprised when a Sega representative saw a review and stopped by in the comments to give an official thumbs-up[*1] .
One can easily image Sega's lawyers going apoplectic as their advice (to sue, sue, sue) goes unheeded. Perhaps those lawyers can find employement at more litigious and fan-hostile companies - like Nintendo.
