Sort of OT: EA Sports Relinquishes Exclusive NCAA Football Rights

CBS story

Not technically uniform related but EA has "agreed" to not renew the exclusive license for 5 years as part of a settlement of a lawsuit. I know many on here are interested in EA's shortcomings at rendering uniforms or giving people more creative control over fantasy/dynasty uniform design so I thought this might be of interest...

I don't understand the legality of how people had a right to have a game produced by other companies or why what EA did was illegal, but whatever. As long as EA keeps making NCAA games along with another company, I will be happy. I will be ticked if EA completely stops making NCAA.

Now you know why many economist among others hate antitrust laws--they often seem to punish success...

There are many things for which anti-trust laws make sense, food, utilities, transportation. However, it's silly to think that people have the right to own a video game at a price they want to pay. The NCAA has rights to its intellectual property. EA purchased those rights. I don't get it.

I'm thinking this is their way of avoiding having to pay the old NFLers who want reimbursed. It's a separate issue but I'm sure they will try to tie them together to avoid a suit.
