Battlefield Academy Renamed, Cross-Platform OS X Version and Demo Released

Matrix Games announces Battle Academy is the new name for the World War II turn-based strategy game launched a year ago with the title Battlefield Academy. The name change is part of a settlement of allegations of copyright infringement by Electronic Arts, and they indicate that these legal matters also held back the release of add-ons and platform adaptations, and in keeping with that a new OS X edition of the game is now available that is able to play in multiplayer matches versus the Windows edition. There is also a new add-on titled Operation Market Garden for both Windows and OS X, and here's word on that: "With 8 single player missions and the introduction of a campaign mode where you have to possibility of carrying over your units from mission to mission, Market Garden adds a complete new level of gameplay to Battle Academy and is a must have for all the fans of this award winning strategy gem!" Finally, they offer a playable demo for Windows or OS X users to sample a custom made mission set in the village of Normandy.

I would like to hear from the vetrans of WW1, WW2, Vietnam, Korea, 1812, about EA's copyright on "Battlefield"...

I didn't see the EA logo anywhere in Kandahar when I was there, just sayin...
When the name of the series is "Battlefield [Suffix]" and you're coming out with a game called "Battlefield [a single word]", there's a very good argument for confusion. If EA was going after someone using a different name they would be overstepping their bounds, but in this case it would be easily confused.
