What was the Konami scandal thing all about? Can someone explain it to me?

Geoff Keighley stated that Hideo Kojima had every intention of attending The Game Awards 2015 to accept any awards, but a Konami lawyer said they (Konami) barred Kojima from attending. Geoff said it was "inconceivable."

Kojima is the guy that developed Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.

Basically, Hideo Kojima was supposed to attend the awards but Konami's lawyers put the kibosh on that. It's pretty screwed up.
