Arg, forgot about Vivendi. /face slap/ Still, they seem to leave them alone, you practically never hear about Vivendi when it comes to Blizz games. Even the post merger name is Activision-Blizzard not Activision-Vivendi, they seem content to just sit back and let the cash roll in without interfering. Whether you like Blizzard or not, they have it pretty good considering most dev studios are constantly raped by their publishers.
Although who knows what happens internally.
