Ubi Soft sues Take-Two Interactive
An official trial date has been set for the first round of legal battles between Ubi Soft Entertainment and Take-Two Interactive Software Europe. The date will be January 22, 2002, as the two companies have been in litigation for the past 12 months over Take-Two's distribution rights of Red Storm Entertainment games in Europe and other non-US countries.
Ubi Soft is stating that Take-Two owes approximately 6.3 million pounds ($9 million) on sales of Red Storm products, as they had previously granted Take-Two rights until December 2000. In the end, the total amount owed could reach 7.5 million pounds with legal fees and interest payments.
