The ScummVM project published a press release a few weeks ago saying that some games for the Nintendo Wii console made use of ScummVM without complying with the terms of the GPL. ScummVM developer Eugene Sandulenko has now revealed more information in a blog posting: “Fingolfin and cyx are bound by the agreement signed by the lawyers. They are not allowed to talk about the case. Other developers are not, and there is pretty handful of them who know at least beginning of the situation. We are not happy about the outcome, cyx and Fingolfin included.”
