    Interesting...

    For the first time, the News Bot did something praiseworthy.

    Afaik, David Ian Andrew Storey is Deathifier (Zachurm Deathifier Emegen) right?

    So why is he suing Dobson David Michael and Planet Arkadia?

    Anyone out there heard something through the grapevine?

    My guess would be because "Treasure-hunting planet" is too similar to "Treasure Island" ?

    Still seems like a reach...

    Interesting stuff about the virtual serving though!

    Nah...

    I just skimmed through the pdf I've referenced earlier.

    The plaintiff, David Ian Andrew Storey, is a professional online gamer and freelance software developer.
    The plaintiff alleges that he is the copyright holder, either solely or jointly, of various literary and artistic works, and that these works were used both promotionally and in-game without his permission. The plaintiff also pleads that there was a breach of a contract for delivery up of in-game land.
    Seems to indicate that Deathifier might have worked for him and was supposed to get some in-game land as compensation, but didn't get his end of the bargain...

    Deathifier was the original owner of 8Coins.

    My understanding was that for various reasons, Arkadia studios took back ownership of the LA in exchange for equity. But that's anecdotal. No idea what the copyright breach is about.

    Weird that Deathi couldn't find Dave to serve papers. His location here in Australia is not exactly secret. Sounds like lazy lawyers to me.

    While litigation may be warranted and has its purpose, I feel its in MA's best interest to keep these articles under wraps.

    What worse promotion could you give than two very significant contributors to EU engaging in a court battle over money and game content.

    Hope a settlement can be reached out of court asap.
