In an assertion distributed by the PPA on Monday (January 4), its CEO, Peter Wright, stated: “While I realize that a considerable lot of you would have jumped at the chance to proceed, and for sure the game remaining parts characteristically protected, we can’t guarantee that we are acting in a vacuum.
