Harmony Gold Arbitration


Today it’s the legal battle between robotech and battletech. A lawsuit by Harmony Gold (distributor of robotech and macross) against Pirahna Games, Harebrained Schemes and Jordan Weisman, creators and licensors of the Battletech franchise. Who has rights to the characters in the Macross franchise? Can a licensee of the movie Macross stop the sale and distribution of merchandise based on the underlying characters in the movie? Will this Robotech vs Battletech lawsuit end up delaying the release of the upcoming Battletech game?
