I'm cautiously optimistic that Disney will realize that taking down the Emu will cause them more harm than good. First of all, this project is supported by a very niche group of players who are either Star Wars fans or just die-hard pre-CU players. Presumably, many here would be willing to fork over money to Disney to try new Star Wars games or even for other Star Wars merchandise. Also, while we are a very small community in the eyes of a behemoth like Disney, hopefully they realize that needlessly crushing SWGEmu would ensure that almost none of us would buy their games and, thanks to the viral nature of social media, many other gamers and Star Wars fans would be reluctant to support their products.
Can you explain what it has to do with them?
I understand they now own the IP. But since all the IP related assets are stored on disks we already own, then I understood that it was OK for us to use it.
Even if we are legally in the right, Disney has the money to drown us in bogus lawsuits. Sadly, it's a fairly common practice for large corporations to just financially destroy smaller projects even if said projects aren't doing anything wrong.
