+ - Ultima IV - EA takedowns precede official reboot->

Kevin Fishburne writes "According to posts at the Ultima fan site Ultima Aiera both browser-based Ultima IV Sega Master System emulation at Master System 8 and IBM-PC port at Phi Psi Software have received cease and desist letters from Electronic Arts, the current IP holder of the Ultima franchise.

The post states that despite the widely held belief that Origin had allowed the Ultima Dragons to distribute Ultima IV freely in 1997, in fact that is no longer the case. It further suggests that the EA takedowns are preceding an upcoming browser-based Ultima IV reboot by Bioware Mythic.

Has EA lost an eighth, or are they well within their rights by going DMCA on a 26 year-old game they had no hand in developing?"
