There will be a notice of some sort if they are submitted and approved.
One possibility is that the images/perv directory can be renamed to adult
with either a README file or with sex and violence subdirectories. If I
download those violent files for approve/disapprove purposes, I know I
won't be keeping them around. The Freedom Fighters are special to me.
If asked to help, I'd say "Beam me up, Sally". And a small group of
list.subscribers know just a bit more ;-) I would not want to see the
Rebel Alliance break down into civil war, or to see them lose the war
against with Robuttnik. Speaking of the R.A., if you've received direct
mail from me lately, check out the full header of my message (you won't
see this in a list message).

They could try to have it shut down. It's hard to say if any such effort
by Sega would succeed in court. The defence could claim their violent
pictures are parodies, and the (US) Copyright Act does protect parodies.
Without seeing those pictures, I can't assess their chances of the court
agreeing with such a claim. If you're really interested in this, drop an
inquiry in misc.legal. Oops, almost forgot: Nothing in this message is
to be construed as legal advice or an attempt to practice law.
Professional legal advice is recommended.
