Yes, there is a lot of controversy concerning Tessera's patch, but I used it in my first playthrough and liked the game experience a lot better than with Wesp's "plus" patch, which I thought made way too many changes. It's also less than half the size, which for people stuck with dialup (like me) means a lot.
I really don't have a clue as to whether Tessera stole anything from Wesp or not.

Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
