Ex-Bungie Composer Marty O'Donnell Wins Legal Fight

It looks like the Halo composer is getting a lot of money owed to him after his split with Bungie. What is more interesting is thatآ—if I’m reading things rightآ—Marty got fired because Activision was assuming artistic control by removing his music, and he wasn’t very happy about it.

Bungie must honor its agreements with O’Donnell that gave him the right to hold a considerable share of stock in the company. And the filing contains for the first time a description of the ordeal that O’Donnell went through as he quarreled with Bungie over issues of creative freedom and stock ownership in the company that he cofounded.
