Who are DEPORTED B.V.?

Recommended Posts

Having cause to look at the EULA for Kerbal Space Program, it refers to a company named "DEPORTED B.V", who are apparently who our contracts (that is, our KSP licenses) are with. Later on an address is given:

DEPORTED B.V.

Strawinskylaan 1431, 1077 XX Amsterdam

Noord Holland, The Netherlands

Tel: +31 20 8941 300

So who are DEPORTED B.V. , why is their name appearing in the legal documents but nowhere else in relation to the game, and what happened to Squad?

The question came up in June, though I don't recall an official answer from Squad. Believe it was concluded to be an entity formed for tax and/or liability reasons.

Corollary: who is this "Squad" gang that seem to have stolen KSP from poor Deported B.V. and claim to own the game?

I'm sure we'll find out eventually, it doesn't seem to be causing any issues though, also, moved to Kerbal Network.

I guess they're a subsidiary of Squad, probably to differentiate the legal and financial complexities of videogame ownership and distribution from Squad's core marketing business. Parallel Dynamics (a related holding) sounds like a likely name for the umbrella that ties Squad's fledgling enterprises together, but this is all conjecture.
