    Hex sued by MTG

    CZE has provided an offical statement in response:

    Cory has also released a similar message:

    Here's a write-up of the case by someone on the internet who is a lawyer. Maybe this will save GatticusFinch the trouble of writing up a summary (thx Hammer for the link).

    I'll update this post if more real info becomes available.
