In statement, the firm said: "Upper Deck was given no other choice since Konami unlawfully terminated the exclusive distribution agreement for the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game.

“We need to protect our company’s interest but more importantly, we need to stand up for the Yu-Gi-Oh! brand, our customers and our players. Konami’s unfounded decision caught us all by surprise and their statement has seriously damaged the Yu-Gi-Oh! brand and Upper Deck’s excellent reputation in the market place. We worry for Yu-Gi-Oh!’s future as Konami has never really contributed anything to the brand”, according to an Upper Deck representative.

This injunction is planned for December 22nd in The Netherlands.
