    Multi-national art studio sues for contract breach
    Topically, the Massive Black Inc. case may seem like an isolated incident of an opportunistic attempt at a corporate takeover. It’s something you might see in a John Grisham novel. However, the alleged complaint against Xi Zhang does illuminate the possibilities of greater problems facing the game industry.
    Xi Zhang’s alleged attempt at toppling Massive Black Inc., a Western outsourcing company, to replace with his own studio — the defendant: Studio Takeover — directly connects to the typical problems of outsourcing. In addition to killing Massive Black Inc., and as a result one of the most important art suppliers in the game industry, a takeover would’ve shifted labor out of the West and back to the East, where the labor is cheaper. Not to grandstand, too much — but the case between Massive Black Inc. and James Xi Zhang points at greater issues facing the industry.
