“Unethical” Edge man stripped of IGDA membership

Edge Games’ Tim Langdell, the fellow who’s been somewhat possessed over the word “edge” for the past few years and has been attempting to stop its use by other companies (but got told off by the law and stripped of his trademarks just recently), has been kicked from the International Game Developers Association (IGDA).

Once a member of the organization’s Board of Directors, Langdell resigned just this August, and has now been removed altogether for “lack of integrity” and “unethical behaviour.”

Writes Brian Robbins, Chair, IGDA Board of Directors, on the organization’s blog: “The Board of Directors today voted to remove Tim Langdell from IGDA membership pursuant to our bylaws Article III. Section 6 (b) which states that any member may be removed from membership if the member has demonstrated a lack of integrity or unethical behavior, as determined by the Board of Directors.”

Short, sweet, and to the point, yes?
