Ubisoft Threatens Something Awful Over Jade Comic

Ubisoft Threatens Something Awful Over Jade Comic.

I’ve seen the comic in question, and it is bad. Not cool bad, or legendarily bad: small-minded 14-year-old bad. It’s not only pornographic and insulting: it’s unfunny. Don’t expend the effort to try and find it.

Although I am not sure whether they are suing the right person, I am glad Ubisoft is taking action.

    I don’t think suing was a good idea. That comic would have come and gone quickly, but now everybody knows about it. I’m not sure what they think they’ll achieve by suing.

    I agree with @Pag, I think Ubisoft isn’t going to achieve anything by suing Something Awful. And I agree that SA is probably the wrong entity to sue, if they’re intent on suing someone.

    I’m not even sure they really have the grounds for a lawsuit.

    I’ve seen the comic as well, and it is incredibly unfunny and in terrible terrible taste. But I mean…it’s an online comic. Deal with it. People will be assholes, and the majority of the world can figure out that they’re assholes.

    My guess is that this will all fall out of the conversation pretty quickly.

    While I am not saying I disagree with either of you, I am still glad they did it. Ubisoft made Ms. Raymond very visible – much more so than anyone else on the team. This made the current situation more likely to happen. It’s good to see that they are sticking up for one of their employees.
