So far the pledges have crossed the $3.75 million mark, more than 4 times the initial project goal of $900k, thus funding the game and 15 of the 18 stretch goals. If the pledges reach $4.5 million all the 18 stretch goal will have been funded. Once completed the game will be DRM-free and available for Windows, MacOS X and Linux.

(. ..) In the suit, IFPI accused China Yahoo of violating copyrights because it allows links between its search engine and Web sites that have illegally copied songs from artists such as U2 and Destiny's Child.'"
