MMORPGs getting Sued

Worlds.com filed suit against NCSoft for copyright infringement on Christmas Eve. Two patents filed in 2000 by Worlds.com involving scalable chat and enabling users to interact with each other in virtual space are all infringed upon by NCSoft's games(Including City of Heroes, Aion, Tabula Rasa, Guild Wars, etc).

Update:

I emailed Worlds.com for an interview about the lawsuit, however so far I've been given no response.

patent trolls are the scum of this century

Yeah, people like to look for every little tiny infringement to make more money. Sometimes it makes sense, but other times, you just have to sit there in awe to the miniscule details people find.

I'd throw in the morons who give them these patents too. What kind of knuckleheads do we have in the Patents and Trademarks office anyway? Can't they use their heads? Should someone really be given a patent for any old idea? I say no. No more stupid patents. I think I'll get a patent on the idea of getting stupid patents. Then if anyone files for a stupid patent I'll sue them.

What ever happened to making money by making and then patenting a product? Is the new way to do things to patent something that is already in wide use then sit on it and spring the lawsuit?

That's a rhetorical question.

Did you know that as much as 30% of the genes in your DNA are owned through patents? Makes you think, eh?

Ya bull, they really have to reform this sort of policy. They should make it so you actually have to make the product before one can patent the product.
