    I’m actually really disappointed in the Guard Frequency this week. I was really hoping for Tony’s expert take on the CIG – Crytek lawsuit.

    Instead I got a smarmy half done summary of…..I don’t know what actually. I don’t know if I expected an in-depth summary of CIG’s response which while it was a little on the extra side. It was understandable as I’m sure CIG feels aggrieved by the lawsuit.

    Please take a look at what I consider a very good summary of CIGs response. it’s a video by Leonard French a copyright attorney. He does a very good job of objectively looking at the response from CIG and contrasting it with the Amended Complaint from Crytek.

    I find it odd Crytek did not offer the GLA during their filing only to have CIG offer it up. Now I’m not an attorney but it appears CIG laid out a really good case for why CryTek should get CryRekt.

    This gentleman from YoutuberLaw also give a really good summary.

    If you’re not going to take the effort to do a decent legal assessment of the legal proceeding that is affecting the game could you at the very least take the time to review the opinion of the people who have.

    I gotta agree with Notoriousdyd, Tony’s take on the Crytek/CIG issue was lacking. I hope to hear a better rundown. It seems every other lawyer disagrees with him on this. Otherwise a fairly enjoyable show as always guys. I don’t jump on Elite often but it’s neat to hear the story is progressing.
