Why EA has been slow to address the CPA licensing problem
A new report from Polygon outlines some of the problems EA has had with CPA licenses for the games it has licensed for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
In a nutshell, EA has a large number of licenses that require licensing agreements, but not enough for EA to be able to complete all of them.
The problem is exacerbated by EA’s reliance on third-party software vendors.
For example, EA uses Crytek to make Crysis 3, and Crytek licenses the CryEngine engine to other developers.
The licensing agreements that EA is required to sign for each game are in a very different format than what most people would use.
It’s not unusual for EA’s licenses to have license agreements that are different from what the average gamer would use to play a game, but it’s quite common for games to have very similar licensing agreements.
For instance, Crysis is licensed by Crytek as “Crytek End User License Agreement,” while Crysis: Warhead is licensed as “crytek End Users License Agreement.”
EA has not yet issued an update on the licensing issue, but the report indicates that EA will be addressing the issue soon.
If you’re a fan of Crysis, we’re not complaining, but we can’t help but be disappointed with the report.
Crytek’s license agreement, for instance, contains some language that seems to suggest EA’s games should not use Crytek software at all.
This is not true of Crytek games, but EA’s license agreements do seem to indicate that the company should not do any of the work Crytek does for the game, such as creating or creating assets for Crytek.
In addition, EA’s licensing agreements for Crysis games are not subject to a CPA.
If EA is unable to complete the licensing agreements it needs to complete to complete its games, then EA will have to use Crytos assets in future releases of the games.
While this sounds like a good idea, EA will likely end up with some of its games using assets from Crytek in the future.
For now, EA is hoping that it can resolve the licensing issues with its Crytek products.
“The licensing agreement we have with Crytek and Crytronix has been in place for years and is very similar to the licensing agreement with EA,” said EA COO Joe Belfiore in a statement.
“Crysis 3 will be the first game we’ll ever release under the license with Crytronic.
We’re hopeful that this license will make the Crytek engine available to all of our partners.”
