Er, your company has been in court ever since Connectix announced that
they're releasing a PlayStation emulator for the Mac. For now they are
temporarily the victors, but as usual the case is on appeal.

Bandai hasn't really done much because they weren't considering the U.S.
as a market for Gundam. But now that they've decided to do it themselves,
you bet they'll no longer let things slide. Don't forget Rising Sun Online
was but the first casualty.
