Things are about to get ugly, i think Zenimax doesnt know who they are dealing with, this isn´t Interplay or Mojang this is Facebook.

I'd rather think they know exactly who they are dealing with. An opponent who actually has money. Now that FB is in the boat...

Zuckie will hire Harvey_goddamn_Specter and his bitch, Mike and level the case flat on its arse.

Just wait and see.

I think the CEO of Zenimax was a former lawyer.

Yerrrp!

Things are about to go megaton

After round one which occurred a few weeks ago, I do not believe Zenimax would have filed suit if they did not feel they had a case.

facebook is no doubt big but don't think for a second that Zenimax are small. This will not go to the court and will be settled outside. But if it goes to the court than Zenimax actually have a case

Their EX employee was working on something along VR tech and he took all that Knowledge to a different company that made 2 plus billion. Zenimax paid for that Employee's pay so in a way he took the research and development that Zenimax paid for to another company

Also i love how y'all are calling out Zenimax over some rumored bad treatment of few developers, how many of you would sue if we were talking about 2 plus BILLION dollars. Easy to talk about being gamers and all when your money isn't on the line

Just because someone went to work for another company doesn't mean that the new company is automatically infringing. The fact that he was working on VR in one place, then went elsewhere to work on VR, doesn't mean that they have a solid case. People take their expertise from company to company all the time. Bringing expertise and bringing IP are two different things. Zenimax will have to prove that code he developed while on the clock at Zenimax is being used in a product at Facebook.

Its really funny how zenimax turned up the heat when they got 2 billion dollars. I can't say if he stole it or not but from what I hear they inquired about this before facebook bought it. I would like to think they would go out of their way to re code and make things legal before a 2 billion dollar buy out. If not they would be really stupid.

I am pretty sure Oculus is perfectly fine.

I think thats the point. They are hoping this never goes to trial and that facebook settles with them out of court. Chump change for facebook is millions to everyone else.

The people giving you disagrees must be ignorant of the facts.

Fun Fact: ZeniMax owns Bethesda.

No guy who's been working for 20 years invented VR tech. VR is way older than 20 years.
