Tesseraction versus DreamCatcher

This page on the framed Tesseraction Games Website (thanks Frans) has word that the developer of Enigma is suing U.S. publisher DreamCatcher Interactive for breach of contract and racketeering:

Tesseraction Games has filed suit for breach of contract and racketeering against publisher Dreamcatcher Interactive. The lawsuit cites unpaid royalties, fraudulent sales reporting and intentional contract violations damaging Tesseractions intellectual property. Tesseraction is also seeking injunctive relief against the publisher. Are there actually any honest publishers in America?

No.

Publishing is an industry based on exploiting those who produce products, while protecting exclusivity with distribution channels and retail outlets in an attempt to stifle competition.

I'll say it again: it's all about the box. Once the box goes, publishers will go. Getting the entire world hooked into broadband tech will accomplish this. When self-publishing becomes viable because distribution is essentially effortless, a renaissance in ALL forms of media will take place. Competition will be between producers of media, not salespeople.

I'm surprised something like EBay for game studios hasn't happened - a single place where media producers can sell their wares using electronic distribution, and the distributor takes a small percentage cut per unit.

It would kill the likes of Ubisoft in a very short time - especially if the median price for an A-grade title is about $20. and the producer keeps 90% of it!
