前 Bungie 作曲家因使用《命运》音乐素材被判藐视法庭

本案律师费可能超过 10 万美金

因《光环》系列与《命运》作品而为人熟知的前 Bungie 作曲家 Marty O’Donnell,因为使用《命运》的音乐素材,违反了他与 Bungie 在 2015 年的官司,导致被判藐视法庭罪名成立,将面对 10 万以上的律师与法庭费用。

Eurogamer 报道,在发现 O’Donnell 的 YouTube 频道和其他平台上,出现《命运》的视频,违反了先前在 2015 年的官司判决后,Bungie 在今年 4 月时控告 O’Donnell 藐视法庭罪名。

<b>09. Destiny 2</b><br />On September 6th, 2017 Destiny 2 launched and while it seemed to be an upgrade in many respects, fans felt the systems nearly perfected with the original just didn’t translate into Destiny 2. PVP teams became larger, there was an odd mod-based power level chase, and the Raid only had a single big-boss damage encounter. It was good but faltered in the endgame. Fast forward to 2019 and Bungie has made vast improvements to that original sandbox and continues to do so with their latest release Destiny 2 Shadowkeep that brings back a 3v3 PVP mode, infuses some much-needed narrative into the overall experience, and builds upon the excellent PVE changes that started with Forsaken in 2018 and continued here with a new armor system.<br />It seems they’re building a playstyle that lends to builds, weapon pairings, and balance. There’s no arguing that Destiny has had its ups and downs through development, but Bungie has also done a tremendous job trying to find that sweet spot as they poke and prod the engine into a place the community is happy with. With regular updates, cross-save, and especially since they’ve gone free-to-play it’s not surprising that Destiny 2 was the number 1 paid, and free game on Steam this October. Destiny 2’s future looks brighter than ever, especially with a team as committed to getting it right as Bungie.<br /><i>- Destin Legarie, Senior Features Producer</i>

今年 7 月 12 日,华盛顿州高等法院法官 Regina Cahan 看过两方呈上的证据后,判决 Bungie 胜诉。判决结果包括 O’Donnell 必须移除网上所有《命运》相关的素材。为了确保未来不会出现类似情况,O’Donnell 还必须交出自己的电子设备供法庭仔细检验,确保他手上有的任何相关音乐素材都已删除。

他还被判处必须退还 Bungie 任何从 Bandcamp 得来的所有音乐收益以及支付工作室的律师与法庭费用。 虽然这些费用的具体金额仍在讨论中,然而 Bungie 的律师费及第三方检验设备的费用,将高达 10 万美金以上。

同时确保 O’Donnell 之前的行为造成的损害减到最低,法院还要求 O’Donnell 必须在他的推特、YouTube、Bandcamp、Soundcloud 等平台公开声明,他没有任何法律授权提供任何《命运》或《Music of the Spheres》的音乐素材,并要求之前曾下载的用户必须删除,也不可以分享。

<b>Destiny 2: Shadowkeep</b><br /> <i>October 1 - PS4, Xbox One, PC, Google Stadia in November</i><br /> After parting ways with Activision earlier this year, Bungie has pushed forward with the Destiny story in the all-new expansion, Shadowkeep. Journey back to the Moon with Eris Morn as you work to eliminate the Hive before they take over Earth. This standalone expansion includes brand-new story content, weapons and gear to customize your Guardians, new missions and quests, and a new raid set in The Black Garden.

O'Donnell 先前是 Bungie 的音效负责人,直到 2014 年被开除。当时后续的官司中,他被要求交还手中所有《命运》相关的素材,也被告知不可以表演或分享上述音乐。

但 O'Donnell 从 2019 年开始,在自己的社交网站上上传《命运》相关的视频与其他资料,包括原声带《Music of the Spheres》,并在 Bandcamp 网站要求打赏。

6 月 4 日 O'Donnell 请求粉丝考虑购买他为 PSVR游戏《Golem》所做的曲目,以筹款帮助他支付庞大的法律费用。
