Last we heard Guitar Hero and Rock Band creator Harmonix was suing Viacom. Now, the tables have turned.
According to a document obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Viacom is suing Harmonix shareholders for about $131 million.
According to the document, earn-out payments made to Harmonix were miscalculated when Viacom and Harmonix aligned in 2006. All things told, Harmonix shareholders made $149,770,149 from the merger, and Viacom wants $131,827,980 of it back.
Here’s an option, give me the $131 million and I’ll call it even. Good? Great.
