First, I'd like to thank everyone that stopped to participate in FFAF contest. I know it took a bit of effort to find the answers. Anyway, I'm sorry to announce, but not all the answers were correct. 

1. Final Fantasy is one of the most successful RPG games ever developed. First published in 1987 for the Nintendo console, by the Japanese company Square Co. Ltd (or more commonly called Squaresoft). The creator, Hironobu Sakaguchi, named his role-playing game 'Final Fantasy' because it was his last ditch effort to fight off the threat of bankruptcy. What company did Squaresoft merge with in 2003?

Answer: Enix Corporation

2. Founded by Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com claims to be the largest Internet retailer in the world. What two companies sued Amazon in the late 1990's, settling out of court, and what years?

Answer:  Barnes and Noble filed a lawsuit on 12 May 1997, alleging that Amazon's claim to be "the world's largest bookstore" was false. Barnes and Noble asserted, "[It] isn't a bookstore at all. It's a book broker." The suit was later settled out of court. Amazon continued to call itself "the world's largest bookstore." Walmart subsequently filed suit on 16 October 1998, alleging that Amazon had stolen trade secrets by hiring former Walmart executives. Although this suit was settled out of court, it caused Amazon to implement internal restrictions and reassignment of the former Walmart executives.

3. What yaoi manga artist, and in what year, had to publicly apologize due to copyright infringement, after tracing advertising photographs for the illustrations in her manga?

Answer: Youka Nitta and the year was 2008.

4. What is the largest desert in the world?

Answer: The world's largest desert is the continent of Antarctica, and the driest place on earth. Antarctica is 5.5 million square miles, or 14,245,000 square kilometres.

Happy Yaoi Hunting!
