Square-Enix being sued

Square-Enix is being sued for $3.78 million US by a Taiwanese publisher, Soft-World International. The suit alleges violation of a 2004 contract for distributing a MMORPG in Taiwan, Macau, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong. Specifically, Soft-World claims that Square hasn't provided them with the necessary source code, making distribution that much harder. The money demanded is a return of a royalty payment. Soft-World is the biggest software publisher in the Chinese market, and already handles localized MMO titles such as RF Online and World of Warcraft.
