Instead of diet coke. More like alex rigopulos is but that title is funnier. Here is a joystiq article about how viacom is probably going to have to pay harmonix half a BILLION dollars.

Awesome. Good for Harmonix!

Now Drake can buy his own Diet Coke factory.

Great! Now Pope can create the time travelling epic that he should, rather than a silly dancing game or that dumb Disney thing.

I don't think all of that money just goes straight to Harmonix but more to stockholders? Which, I would think would include Drake and others ( I hope they have stock options) but I doubt they are all just swimming in cash right now. Still a good ruling for Harmonix!

John Drake is too good to be double fisting hundreds. John Drake only double fists handfuls of diamonds and when the diamonds get sweaty, he throws those in the trash and grabs some more out of the giant pile he keeps close by at all times.

Who's the money going to? Even a fraction of that half-billion just seems like an unfathomable amount of money to me.
