French term or phrase: bubale
I am totally baffled by the meaning of this word in the following context. Obviously it does not mean hartebeest!
This is from a lawsuit involving a video game production company. This is the only time this term appears in my document.

de la quantité d'exemplaires fabriqués, ou à défaut commercialisés (en précisant le nombre d'exemplaires distribués gratuitement ou sous forme de bubales")
