Combat Over Universal Combat

In a turn of events that harkens back to the controversial release of the original Battlecruiser game, the Battlecruiser Online Forums now have more on the brewing disagreement between 3000AD developer Derek Smart and publisher DreamCatcher Interactive over whether Universal Combat is ready for prime time. There is a conflict over the possibility that RC1 of the game will be shipped, and this all may end up in the courts. Here's a bit:

Today, Eric and my attorneys in Canada are going to advise them via paperwork of their breach and my desire to protect my IP from damage and at any/all costs. Obtaining a TRO is not a big deal because my contract shows that I own the IP, that my company, rep, IP etc would be damaged if this RC1 build were to be allowed into the retail channel. With a TRO (which for expediatry reasons has to be taken out in Canada), they can replicate a million units, but will never ship them. And since a TRO requires a hearing in order to either (a) have it removed of (b) have it extended, if successful, the RC1 build will never enter the retail channel until the case is heard. Which could be 3-4 weeks, depending on the Canadian court system.

What's sad is the total lack of professionalism by dragging this tripe in to his forums and making it public.

Well said.
