Bulgarians Act Against Chessbase

The shit fight between the Bulgarians and Chessbase over the broadcast of chess games has erupted anew after the former began formal proceedings in court. Silvio Danailov tells Chessdom:

Before the start of the World Chess Championship we explicitly stated that no company can use the moves without the official site's staff permission. And this was violated by Chessbase, they put themselves above the law in Europe, above the general FIDE ethical rules.

It could be about ethics or it could be about contracts. Or it could just be payback. See the comments section of an old post relating to this same subject.
