If You Have Some Time and Want Something to Read...

I posted earlier last week about Topps and CMG suing Upper Deck regarding UD's use of the images and signatures of some of the players that they had recently signed deals through the players' estates. With UD coming out with SP Legendary Cuts product, along with their ongoing Yankee Legacy insert bonanza, players who are now exclusive to Topps are appearing in these products.

If you have a few minutes...okay, a half hour-an hour tops (ha ha ha, he said tops)...here is the document detailing the lawsuit and the restraining order.

In a prepared statement, UD is stating "that the lawsuit is factually and legally inaccurate. Upper Deck will vigorously defend itself, and pursue all remedies available to it pursuant to the law, in this matter.

Makes one wonder what will happen to that 6000 + card insert set that UD had planned for this year. I'm sure they can't change anything immediately. It my take a while before this gets settled.

Let the battle begin.
