EA Buys Angry Birds Publisher, But Doesn't Get Angry Birds

But this latest deal will not actually include the intellectual property rights to Angry Birds – those will remain with Rovio, the Finnish company that created and developed the game.

Seems odd that they'd not want that as well.

They bought the publisher, not the development studio.

Nice - I'd hate to see yet a good game being ruined by that sucky behemoth :)
