Good point, though I'm confident that's crossed their mind. Certainly the 'studio' has an independent set of licenses.
About the 'paid' thing. Sure experience is worth something, however, labor is labor....period. If the project itself is not for profit, fine, but otherwise it's merely giving your money away to work for free.
Also, if they're not actually paying these people (emphasis on 'if', as I've not seen any definitive evidence that this is the case), what are they saying about their own school? Are you going to tell me, that an advanced student in the $65k program still needs a bit of free interning to be worthy of a real job? By outward appearances it doesn't exactly inspire confidence in their program if that's the case.
Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike gnomon, but it might be in their best interest to be very careful with how they handle this thing..........b/c they're walking a very thin line.
