I'm looking into making a Twin Stick Shooter based on a Unit from WW2, would I be allowed to use the Unit name, without getting into any legal issues?

probably? What is the unit name? – Eric B Nov 26 '12 at 13:29
30AU (30 Assault Unit) – Lex Nov 26 '12 at 13:33
Oh, well since that's a british unit I'm honestly not sure. You'd probably have to look up the laws specific to that country. I'm VERY doubtful that you would run into legal trouble though. – Eric B Nov 26 '12 at 14:51
This question appears to be off-topic because it is a legal question, it is also very broad (what country does the law concern to). – Noctrine Dec 17 '13 at 20:05
