Frederick Raynal wins a decade long legal battle against atari

Frederick Raynal - creator of Alone in the Dark, as well as certain other classic games, has won a decade long legal battle against Atari (formally Infogrames)

The court ruled that the game, as well as the early 3d technologies used to make it, could not be treated as a single enity, and therefor the rights should be divided between the various party's involved.
Raynal was declared the author of some of the key pieces of 3d software (3D Desk and Scene Edit), as well as retaining some rights over the gameplay.
They are currently evaluating how much financial compensation Raynal is owed.
It is unknown at this point if anything is going to the rest of the team who worked on AitD.
