It has been brought to my attention that Vacalam has uploaded a map, called "Rome Total War", which still has the trademarks on the map of a computer game by the same name. I think noblemaster should take a look at this and perhaps delete the map before Sega takes legal action over their Trademark and map being used.

I have deleted the map!

Generally, I couldn't find any Total War map images matching with the uploaded map!? I might be wrong. Please note that using the "Total War" logos is definitely a no-go! Also, I believe the name "Total War" is protected if I am not mistaken.

I am not sure if it is an offense but better safe then sorry! If the creator of the map (who?) can get permission from Sega (?), then obviously it's no problem. Otherwise let's not go try infringing on copyrights etc.

Sorry I had to remove the map, looked fun. Legally though I am in dangerous waters if I allow it!

Asking for permission might not be that difficult, but getting approval by Sega might be a completely different story. If you want to try, you could contact their customer service (I assume you are a Total War Customer!) and ask them if it is alright/what is needed to get permission. ... quests/new
I would suggest, submit some screenshots too, so they know how it will be used.

If you don't get approval/want to upload your map now, please do the following:
1. remove all Sega/Total War logos/trademarks etc.
2. The map image (background) you used is from Total War Rome I assume? If that's the case, make sure you change the image to something else, where you have permission to use it.
3. name: I think leaving "Rome Total War" might be OK, but better change it to be on the safe side. You can mention the map is based on Rome Total War in the description.
