A short history of Activision Blizzard or how...

A very, very good read on Activision, you guys thought EA were bad? By the end of reading this you'll hate Bobby Kotick.

The goal that I had in bringing a lot of the packaged goods folks into Activision about 10 years ago was to take all the fun out of making video games.

Nothing new in the business, big guys want to make more money by screwing everyone below. Everyone has done it from Nintendo to Microsoft.

That's good shit right there. In short - you don't own anything you make, to the full extent of the law. What this really means it they will simply do whatever they like with your user made content, unless you litigate the crap out of them (which most people cannot afford to do).
