Interview - Ortwin Freyermuth
Cofounder of CIG, with Chris. Legal support side, came from the film world. Toast's boss. Met Chris on film projects. Worked on Das Boot Director's Cut (3 1/2 hours!).
VAT discussion - Make sense to have operations in Europe. Game Tax Credits. But unfortunately means following the rules and that means VAT. Also worth noting the Euro prices don't need to adjust for devaluation against the dollar. Recent Euro drop could have caused increased prices but they don't have to do that since they can spend Euros directly. Change may actually offset VAT.
Strangest legal situation? Idris redesigned. A person got very upset, and complained that CIG was in breach.
Looking forward to Arbitration and Court system in game.
PAX East and SXSW go on sale soon.
