Dead Rising: Producer, game firm in rights battle over zombies

An independent movie producer with rights to the horror movie George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead sued video game maker Capcom Co Ltd on Monday in the latest salvo in a copyright dispute.

The producer, MKR Group, alleged that Capcom's popular Dead Rising game was essentially a computer game version of its Dawn of the Dead movies.

Earlier this month, Capcom filed a case against MKR in a California federal court, seeking a declaration that the game did not infringe on MKR's intellectual property rights. It also sought an injunction to prevent MKR from suing the company.

The story is too old to be commented.
