I thought the case was still on-going. I don't understand why UpperDeck hasn't asked for a cease & desist order against Konami, though.

well here's my view of the entire situation. i understand konami wanting to take the game back, it's their's and they have a right to distribute it as they see fit. but, they are still under contract with upperdeck. what we know of this agreement is that upperdeck is licensed to distribute here in the north and south american continent and in the uk, while konami gets the asian markets. aside from this we know nothing else, we don't know any of the obligations the two companies have with one another, so it is pointless for us to argue that upperdeck violated the agreement, bc this information was never made public.

my other concern is this, it is obvious that konami still had a bit of tenure left to go, they tried this in the american courts, and in the netherlands, which are the dutch courts, both systems ruled in favor of upperdeck. so it is brainless to say tht they have the authority to directly release the champion pack and crimson crisis, when they already lost 2 legal battles.

i believe konami needs to sit this out and wait, once the contract is up, then they can go ahead and make plans to retain the game. as for this dispute affecting duelists, this dispute is having a negative impact on OUR gameplay. the regional and sjc tournaments are being haulted until it is resolved, we may even see worse with the coming weeks. this conflict needs to be put to rest for the sake of the game and people who play it, otherwise people will stop playing as a result.

You might wanna take a look at this thread regarding the Konami vs Upperdeck battle. If what it says is true there's a lot more to what's going on than it seems:

So the long and short of it is basicly that UDE created "Counterfits" of cards (and by that mearly printed copies of certain rare cards to put into blisterpacks and, presumably, make them a bit more accessable) and Konami basicly throwing a shitfit over it?

Wow, that almost makes me feel sorta guilty for enjoying Symphony of the Night.

...

Almost.
