E3 2010: Kinect Lawsuit Waiting To Happen? Kinect Sounds A Lot Like Kinetic...

I don't see Sony doing anything. And don't you think MS would do their homework when it comes to naming something?

kinect will get lots of lawsuits not because of the name but just because there is always someone waiting to get royalties (patent trolls)

I agree, man. The patent system is so overly complicated and vast that you have to spend a crapload of money to have people search through it if you want to steer clear of lawsuits. Most companies, however, just settle with the patent trolls for a couple of million.

Honest though, it's pointless, but it's just something else the government can tax us for.

Thats why MS bought 3DV for the patents so theyre safe on that front, wishful thinking from Ironstar

After the Kinect event, I`d say a lawsuit is the least of Microsoft`s worries right about now.
