Derek Smart vs DreamCatcher

A post to the Battlecruiser Online Forums by 3000AD's Derek Smart (thanks uberneuman and Voodoo Extreme) expresses unhappiness at the value price point Universal Combat has been tagged with, saying: "We [3000AD] fully intend to litigate this because this is just ridiculous." He also describes how this impacts support of the product:

Because of how the deal is structured and given how we are paid, we stand zero chance of making ANY money on this game, let alone turn a profit for our efforts. And with that, we certainly won't have the money to allocate resources to its support. Which means, this particular UC game - unless this matter is resolved prior to the game going to retail - will be the one and only version released. No patches. No tweaks. Nothing. In other words, its Take Two all over again - except that in the case of this game, it actually works.

Regardless of anyone's opinion of the man, I don't think anyone can argue that this latest action by dreamcatcher was a pretty low blow. I for one never thought a publisher had the ability to set the price, I'd always thought that was something that was established by the developers. I wonder where the animosity between the two came from?
