Collectively, we as fans of both of the Japanese animation series, Super Dimensional Fortress Macross (by Studio Nue/Tatsunoko/Big West), and the Robotech franchise (as edited and created by Carl Macek, license currently held by Harmony Gold Productions) formally petition Harmony Gold Productions for the following: formally convey genuine interest and resume cooperation between themselves and Tatsunoko/Big West/Studio Nue regarding intellectual properties in North America and Europe, pertaining specifically to the subsequent and future released products of the Super Dimensional Fortress Macross series, along with renewed business transparency and creative efforts on its own licensed property, the Robotech Saga (originally having utilized the compiled works of Super Dimensional Fortress Macross, Super Dimension Calvary Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber M.O.S.P.E.A.D.A under license by Tatsunoko Studios), as created in the United States by Carl Macek. The intent of this petition is that Harmony Gold Productions will eventually distribute both products of the Super Dimensional Fortress Macross and Robotech Saga properties, or exempting this, will cooperate with distributors who have expressed both interest and intent to do so.

It has been readily identified and confirmed that the following grievances have been committed in the past by Harmony Gold Productions creative, operational, and legal management with regard to said intellectual properties:

1. Abuse and neglect of intellectual property rights of said series, through cease and desist letters of spurious claims
2. Unethical litigation over distribution rights
3. Unethical fundraising and/or crowd-funding
4. Lack of creative and management oversight for said properties
5. Recurring communications and public relations issues
6. Abuse of consumers' trust

As such, we the fans/consumers express skepticism and doubt in regards to Harmony Gold Productions' current intent and overall business practices.

However, we believe that meeting the intent and purposes of this petition would do considerable good to renew consumer trust in Harmony Gold Productions, especially in regards to owned licenses and any expressed intent to produce new products for said licenses. And it is also our belief that Harmony Gold Productions would benefit financially with the backing of enthusiastic consumers, and keep them in good standing publicly.
