Take 2/Thompson Settlement

GTAGaming.com - Rockstar/Take2 News | @ 09:28 AM MDT | By Kodo
There has been a lot of legal controversy between Take 2 and Jack Thompson, but recent news predicts it might not continue. Remember earlier when Jack Thompson threatened to sue to block the sale of Manhunt 2 and GTA IV, and Take 2 filed a countersuit against Thompson's public nuisance tactic, to which Thompson filed another countersuit? Well now the two parties have agreed to a settlement where Take 2 will drop their federal lawsuit and Thompson will drop his counterclaim. Facing the possibility of jailtime, Thompson has agreed that he:
1.) will not sue or threaten to sue to block sale or distribution of any game published by Take Two or its subsidiaries (i.e., Rockstar).

2.) will not communicate to Take Two or anyone doing business with T2 (like, say Wal-Mart) any accusation that the company committed any wrongdoing by selling its games. Thompson is not restricted from criticizing the content of T2 games, nor is he prevented from acting as counsel in lawsuits brought against Take Two by other parties

3.) will make any future contacts with T2 through its attorneys

Let's hope Thompson doesn't find a way to continue being annoying.

Jack Thompson will either ignore the settlement entirely, or find a way to continue spreading his own brand of sunshine. He's on a mission from God, or something.
