The "beef" between Activision and Infinity Ward happened months after Modern Warfare 2 was released. Even so, Activision owned and still own Infinity Ward and Modern Warfare 2 was published under Activision.
Whether they like it or not, Modern Warfare 2 is Activision's game, just like most Call of Duty games are.
