I'd love to be able to post information about podcasts, videos, songs and what not but feels very spammy to do so in general.
I'd love to be able to find all the different Ingress related content out there in the world.
I'd back that.
Chances are they are consulting with their lawyer about that...
"Lawyer" lol. Niantic need you to buy more frackers to afford half a lawyer.
No, Niantic haven't. And they don't control ANY portal legally (they exist IRL) and pretty much NOTHING in their vocab in regards to Ingress except N'zeer is able to be currently copystruck. Even "Shapers" is a registered trademark (that they don't own).
This is why I like Niantic. They're naive, which makes them cute.
