Along with titles like EyeToy and SingStar, Sony's Buzz! line of quiz games for the PlayStation 2 have been part of a concerted effort on the part of the electronics giant to court a more mainstream audience with its gaming console. However, one company already well established in serving that sector's trivia needs thinks Sony's family friendly is a little too familiar.
Carlsbad, California-based Buzztime Entertainment has filed suit against Sony Computer Entertainment Europe in the Southern District of California, alleging that the Buzz! line of games and the "It's time to get buzzing" tagline violate several of its own trademarks.
