    Hello all..

    It took some time to locate a source. but in the phone call I received this morning from a local newspaper, they told me WOTC had settled its lawsuit...

    Here is a website with the details... (not much details are given in the article)

    Heh... now that's interesting... I was wondering what happened to it... thanks, Poképlayer!

    Just out of curiosity, what was it all about?

    The lawsuit, from my understanding, had something to do with Wizards saying they popularized the Pokemon TCG and wanting some money from Nintendo. I could be totally wrong, but that is what I think it was about.

    I bet they "settled their differences" harshly. I wouldn't be surprised if the lawsuit was rekindled again in the future.

    Well, they wouldn't get any money for something as general as that. That was their job as liscencee.

    It had to do with their not getting to release the last two sets (LC2 and Jamboree) after they had done all the work on them and the accusation that TPC stole employees and their proprietary TCG knowledge from them.

    I expect some money changed hands, but that's just a guess.

    Figures. A trial would have been bad for both companies. I doubt we'll ever know the details, though.

    With that out of the way, hopefully the Pokemon-e TCG game can continue on without further bad news. Hey 2003 was not a good year in most respects, so lets make 2004 a good one for us.
