Scientifically Proven Entertainment wins case over denied Michigan tax credit

ARTICLE BY KATHERINE YUNG, DETROIT FREE PRESS - link to original article

In a victory for the state's fledgling video game industry, an Oakland County judge ruled Friday in favor of a Farmington Hills company that sued the state last July for denying it a tax credit for a video game that was being created in Michigan.

Oakland County Circuit Judge James Alexander sided with Scientifically Proven Entertainment of Farmington Hills, which developed "Man vs. Wild: The Game," which went on sale last month.

A year ago, the Michigan Film Office had told Nathaniel McClure, CEO of Scientifically Proven, that the company was not eligible for a tax credit because it did not own or control all of the intellectual property rights involved in producing the game.

But Alexander wrote in his order released Friday that Michigan's laws regarding the incentives "anticipated that an eligible production company may not, at the time of (tax credit) approval, own all intellectual property rights necessary in the project."

"They were adding these requirements and language that simply was not in the statute," said Peter Webster, an attorney at Dickinson Wright, who is representing McClure.

The Film Office could not say Friday whether it planned to appeal the decision. "We are having conversations with the Department of Treasury and the Attorney General to determine our next course of action," said spokeswoman Michelle Begnoche.

McClure said $1.5 million was spent to develop the game, which is based on the hit Discovery Channel series "Man vs. Wild." Scientifically Proven is seeking a tax credit of a little more than $400,000, McClure said.

McClure had moved to Michigan with his family because of the state's film incentives, which also apply to video games, music videos, TV shows and other forms of entertainment.

Scientifically Proven is working on several projects, but McClure said it has been more difficult to land work since the state announced a $25-million cap on incentives for film and other entertainment.

"I'm trying my best" to stay in Michigan, he said.
