Obviously computer generated. No law firm would touch this if they had even the slightest knowledge of the original EverEmber. They have Enterbrain graphics and did not give credit for half the source tutorials they are using. Not to mention they already stole from several people.
Besides, I live in Canada. US law doesn’t affect me xD
