Attempting to protect intellectual property rights

SNK Playmore has terminated its licensing agreement with Tommo, the manufacturer and distributor of the Neo Geo X line of hardware.

In an effort to protect its intellectual property rights, SNK Playmore stipulates Tommo must "immediately cease any and all manufacturing, distribution, marketing and promotion" of the Neo Geo X Gold, Neo Geo X Classic games, and Neo Geo X Arcade Stick.

Despite SNK Playmore's demands, Neo Geo X products are presently still available via online retailers, including both GameStop and Amazon.
