Is it me, or does this look VERY close to "Here I Stand" by GMT?

Cheers

By look, do you mean it looks similar graphically, or do you mean that the game play is the same?

As far as copyright goes, I'd be most concerned that Rise of Nations is already under copyright in the US, for the civ-style PC game: Rise of Nations

Europe has a way of looking rather similar across hundreds of games...busy battleground continent.

Here I Stand is, based on the comments by designer Ed Beach, heavily dependent on Napoleon at War and A Mighty Fortress. So if there's infringement, who is infringing on who?

I understand that Ed Beach was approached by Luca Franceschetti, the designer of Rise of Nations for his thoughts on the new design. Ed seems comfortable with Luca's work.

Napoleonic Wars comes to mind as well.

Did anyone copyright European History?
Then, there're so many titles infranging copyright rules!

Here is the official presentation of A NEW WORLD:

These pages are an abstract from the game rules and they provide a trustable preview of the game concept and design.

Enjoy!

Have you gone through every hex-and-counter treatment of the Eastern front during WWII accusing them of copyright infringement?
