TAITO AND THE NETHERLANDS EMBASSY IN JAPAN BRING WATERWAYS TO iPHONE / iPOD TOUCH USERS WORLDWIDE

Netherlands-Japan GameJam 2008 Winning Game will be available at the App Store
LOS ANGELES (June 11, 2009) — TAITO Corporation (TAITO®), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Square Enix Holdings Co., Ltd., today announced that, with the cooperation of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Japan, action-puzzler WATERWAYS™ will be on sale at the App Store® worldwide and available for the iPhone® and iPod touch® on June 11. WATERWAYS, developed by Dutch studio Rough Cookie, was the winning concept of the Netherlands-Japan GameJam 2008 contest, held as part of the "Netherlands in Japan 2008-2009" celebration.

Last year was the 150th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between Japan and the Netherlands, and this year, 2009, marks 400 years of trade between the two nations. Sponsored by the Dutch game organizations NLGD Foundation and the Dutch Game Garden, and also backed by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Japan GameJam 2008 contest was held by Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Japan as part of the continuing "Netherlands in Japan 2008-2009" celebration.

The Netherlands government invests in the growth of its national creative industry, and for this reason the "Netherlands in Japan 2008-2009" celebration has also featured events focusing on cross-cultural exchange via games. TAITO has long taken an active role in promoting the industry and mobile gaming in particular by participating in world-class events such as the International Mobile Gaming Awards. Hoping to make use of this prior experience and eager to contribute to the longstanding friendship between Japan and the Netherlands, TAITO participated in the "Netherlands in Japan 2008-2009" celebration by joining the panel of judges for the Netherlands-Japan GameJam 2008 competition and agreeing to publish an extended and adapted version of the winning concept.

GameJam winner WATERWAYS is an action puzzle game designed and developed by Dutch studio Rough Cookie. Players assume the role of a heroic cow named Patch. When the Netherlands' state-of-the-art water management system "Caretaker 3000" goes haywire, leading to widespread flooding, it's up to Patch to navigate a series of water-filled mazes and drawbridges in an effort to reach and repair the leaking valves. WATERWAYS makes full use of the iPhone/iPod Touch's motion sensors, with intuitive controls and instantly appealing game play.

TAITO and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Japan hope to continue to work together for the benefit of both Japan and the Netherlands' game industries.

August 5, 2009 Square Enix Prevails in South Korea Copyright Infringement Lawsuit in Seoul High Court

Unauthorized modification and commercial use of footage from the
Square Enix CG Animated film FINAL FANTASY VII: ADVENT CHILDREN in a music video
Tokyo, Japan (August 5, 2009) Square Enix Co., Ltd.’s (Square Enix) copyright infringement lawsuit against Korean entertainment production company Fantom Entertainment Group (Fantom) and music video producer Hong Jeong-ho resulted in a damage award of 300 Million Korean Won (approx. US$244,000) to Square Enix at the conclusion of the trial in March 2008. Following an appeal lodged by the defendants, on July 3, 2009, the Seoul High Court ruled that Fantom and Hong Jeong-ho should pay 400 Million Korean Won (approx. US$326,000) to Square Enix.

In light of this development, Mr. Yasuhiko Hasegawa, Square Enix's General Counsel: “We have been consistent in our claims during this lawsuit regarding the value of FINAL FANTASY® VII ADVENT CHILDRENTM and our FINAL FANTASY series, as well as the damages the company has suffered as a result of the modification and adaptation made without obtaining permission. The initial amount awarded in this case, 300 Million Korean Won, was the largest the courts in South Korea have ever awarded in cases infringing one single work of art, and having this figure increased to 400 Million Korean Won following an appeal by the defendants is further affirmation of the severity of this copyright infringement as well as the recognition and value the FINAL FANTASY series has attained in South Korea. Square Enix will continue to take decisive action against any infringements upon our intellectual property, recognizing that this property is one of our most crucial resources.”

(Summary of Events)
In March 2007, Fantom began the for-profit online distribution of a music video for the song “Sonata of Temptation” by popular Korean pop singer IVY containing an unauthorized live-action scene-for-scene adaptation of a scene from FINAL FANTASY VII ADVENT CHILDREN. In response to an injunction filed by Square Enix, the Seoul Central District Court ordered Fantom to cease distribution and sales of the video as of April 6, 2007, and subsequently, on March 13, 2008, ordered Fantom to pay damages of 300 Million Korean Won. Fantom and Mr. Hong Jeong-ho appealed this decision and the case was elevated to the Seoul High Court, which on July 3, 2009, issued the decision ordering Fantom and Hong Jeong-ho to pay damages of 400 Million Korean Won.
