Anyone here played Atlantik? It is a free game that plays like Monopoly. It
came with Fedora Core 3 Linux, but now, in FC4, it's not included there
I've been wondering if it is legal to release a game that plays like
Monopoly, but with different game name, different game rules and different
board than the classic Monopoly.
I know that Monopoly is trademarked and owned by Hasbo, but can they patent
the gameplay? Have they patented it/cvs/xorg/xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree98/accel/s3pwlb/drivers/newmmio

No. The driver calls the functions that set up the ScrnInfoRec.
