Originally Manic Miner was a game for the ZX Spectrum, developed by Mr Matthew Smith.

Following diligent investigation of the available information it has been concluded that the copyright in Manic Miner does not belong to Mr Smith.

In 2017 my client (Elite Systems Group Ltd) entered into a long term, exclusive licence agreement with the copyright owner upon which it has and continues to rely.

On behalf of my client, I have been in correspondence with Mr Smith for some weeks. Mr Smith has been invited to provide evidence to support his assertions as to copyright. By his own admission, Mr Smith does not have such evidence. Consequently Mr Smith’s assertions are denied. A public retraction of and apology for his recent public statement(s) has been requested.
