Westwood-based video game maker named in patent infringement suit

Turbine Inc. of Westwood, a leading maker of Internet-based, multiplayer video games, has been named in a patent infringement lawsuit that targets several of the world's largest online gaming firms.

The complaint was filed by Paltalk Holdings Inc. of Jericho, N.Y., in the US District Court in Marshall, Texas, one of the nation's most popular venues for patent lawsuits. "The eastern district of Texas is considered a plaintiff-friendly jurisdiction,'' said Christopher Donnelly, a partner at Donnelly Conroy & Gelhaar LLP in Boston.

Turbine produces adventure games like Dungeons & Dragons Online and Lord of the Rings Online, which are designed to be played over the Internet simultaneously by thousands of players, who pay monthly subscription fees of about $15.
