Online game operator Tianyue has once again issued an open letter claiming that Electronic Arts (EA) violated Chinese law numerous times during its partnership with the company. According to Tinyue's letter:
1. EA violated regulations in registering EAPogo.com.cn by itself and registering non-business ICP paperwork.
2. EA violated regulations in unilaterally making use of Tianyue's ICP registration after internal and public beta testing for Pogo, and refused to hand over operating rights for Pogo to Tianyue.
3. EA violated the regulations laid out in the Chinese government's Notice on Strengthening Management of Foreign-Invested Telecommunications Value-Added Services in refusing to transfer rights to the Pogo domain name (EAPogo.com.cn) to Tianyue, or to use a new domain name owned by Tianyue.
4. EA violated regulations by operating the servers that powered Pogo on a non-business ICP license when the servers were in fact used for business.
