I think a little bit of context is in order. The following comes courtesy of a Frogswares blog post
on August 25, 2020:
"The agreement is, therefore, terminated without further formality. Moreover, on July 17, 2020, Nacon attempted to oppose the termination in court, but the judge rejected the demand, and the contract is now terminated in the eyes of the law."
Nacon is no longer the legal distributor of The Sinking City. However, the courts need to decide who to give legal distributorship to. So while that's pending, the court said Frogwares couldn't delist Nacon's version until then. Nacon's version is the base game, not the Deluxe edition, which Nacon pirated and uploaded to Steam. The court's decision did not grant Nacon carte blanche to sell pirated versions of content outside their original contract scope.
Nacon's response appears to ignore the facts of the case as they stand today. Further, like the subject matter of the game they published, Nacon seems disconnected from the legal reality of the situation.
Case in point:
NACON reserves the right to take legal action against FROGWARES for its aggressive and prejudicial comments. FROGWARES has been careful not to indicate that all court decisions in the dispute between NACON and FROGWARES have thus far been favorable to NACON.
They legally cannot take action against Frogwares because the case is pending a judge's decision on WHO owns the distribution. The courts already terminated the distribution contract last year. The language used in the video and blog isn't aggressive and prejudicial. They are also not judging the situation. They are merely presenting evidence and facts that are available. So what exactly would they sue Frogwares for? It is foolish credulity.This comment was edited on Mar 3, 2021, 19:52.
