Remember GameStick? Well, it was just removed from Kickstarter as a result of an intellectual property dispute. That in itself means Kickstarter is legally obligated to "remove the project from public view until the process is complete or the dispute is resolved," which has been done. That doesn't necessarily mean that the project has been cancelled just yet – GameStick has 30 days to resolve the issue. If it hasn't been sorted out by that time, Kickstarter will then have to cancel it, making GameStick nothing but a memory.

Update: Turns out this is less of an issue that we originally thought. They stated on Facebook that the problem in question can be found in one of the promo videos for GameStick: they "accidentally displayed an image in [the] video that didn't have clearance to be in the video." They're amending the video at this very moment and expect to be back in action soon.
Update 2: It's back now, and all is right with the world.


The company has already taken to its Facebook page with an official, yet vague statement:

Hi everyone, we've just become aware of this intellectual property dispute on kickstarter. We apologize for any confusion this may cause our backers, supporters and fans. We are looking into this immediately and we will update you as soon as possible.

At this time, that's basically everything we know. We'll keep you in the loop as more info becomes available.

Thanks, Shane!
