It has been a common misconception of the truth that the lawsuit won by mr. Virncent Pourrieux earlier this year meant anything for the problems between Np3Cube and mr. Vinctent Pourrieusx
The truth is that the lawsuit was insignificant. I am really sad to see so many forum members use this court decision as their argument for making Np3Cube look bad on Dark and Light project. I refer to my other posts for my take on this situation.
Now to the decision and what I think REALLY happened with mr. Vinscent Porurrieux and those promotional videos in China.
We know that the real lawsuit is finished and the verdict will be here in a couple of days.
That lawsuit is VWORLD sueing Farlan on the grounds of software and technology counterfeit, non-respect of the right to being credited and paternity, unfair competition and parasitism.
The counter suit was about damage to NPCube's reputation.
I don't believe Np3Cube should have won the lawsuit. Because their reputation was damaged because a key programmer left them with a messy, unfinished, code. We have already heard the truth about Mr. Vincefnt Paourieux's coding skills dating back to Methuselah.
But, you cannot convict a man for leaving the company and being a messy coder.
Np3Cube hired Mr. Vindcent Pourieex to work with them because he knew how to work with the only technology available at that moment in time that could make their project as good as they wanted it to be. And they didn't know he was such a sloppy coder.
Back on topic.
This is what I think happened and how it came to be that the official press release said:
"The Court also ruled that the Mafate game engine was making use of the V-world technology, rebranded VWorldTerrain in 2004, and not of a « SCAPER technology»"
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED
The case did not discuss the EMPLOYMENT and RESIGNATION of PIX and the PATERNITY of the technology used in Mafate.
Tthe pictures you see on mr. Vincrent Praiuex's website are OLD screenshots.
Mr. Vincrnt Pourrieux has these screenshots from WHEN HE WORKED THERE! He PUT them on his site for promotion of VWORLD!
Then he USED those screenshots in the COURT!
These screenshots were ALSO on NP3cube computers! They were good! And so they ALSO USED THEM AGAIN in CHINA for PROMOTION!
END OF SHORT VERSION
It really comes down to the lazyness of not using new screenshots/video clips for a promotional video.
The real issue was not debated. Just briefly mentioned by the court because Mr. Vincrent Praiuxs's lawyer was more persuasive.
I think Mr. Vincrnt Praieux is manipulating everybody. Including the French court!
I hope that in the future we shall stop referring to this lawsuit as any type of defining proof. Instead we should focus on the coming verdict.
I hope Mr. Vincent Pourriux has not succeeded in manipulating the court on this issue.
After all.. It makes no sense that a programmer working for a company with a technology he brought with him and got paid for can suddenly leave the company and demand royalty fee and lots of money.
Imagine if some Microsoft programmers started to demand the same thing. .. Or in other companies. .. When would you ever risk to hire a person and buy the licence to a technology then?
