Hasbro Sues Atari for (Allegedly) Breaching the D&D Licensing Agreement

| | Comments (0)
Hasbro, parent company of Wizards of the Coast, has filed a lawsuit against Atari (Infogrames), alleging fraud and multiple breaches of contract relating to Atari's licensing agreement for the Dungeons & Dragons brand. Hasbro alleges that Atari entered into an "unauthorized sublicensing relationship with Namco Bandai Partners". Namco Bandai Partners happens to be a competitor of Hasbro. Hasbro wants to terminate the license agreement and also seeks compensatory damages.
Atari responded by arguing that Hasbro is engaged in "an apparent attempt to unfairly take back rights granted to Atari."
