Sydney-based Perception, the developer behind "Stargate SG-1: The Alliance", an FPS game based on the Stargate SG-1 TV series that was cancelled in early 2006, have begun legal proceedings against their ex-publisher, the Austrian-based JoWood Productions AG, according to Perception's website. Perception are apparently just about to file damages against JoWood in excess of EUR 8 million.
From Perception's website:
"We are confident that the outcome of the trial will result in a satisfactory result for Perception. Legal advice received in Austria and Australia confirms that any judgement granted against JoWooD in an Australian court is enforceable in Austria ," stated Perception’s CEO, Ben Lenzo
This is completely separate from the criminal libel proceedings Perception issued against JoWooD CEO, Dr Albert Seidl in September 2005 - that is still going through the courts.
