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

Ironstar: We understand the lingo with Microsoft's Kinect (formerly Project Natal), their goal is to unite families under their Kinect motion sensing camera. We all can understand why Microsoft chose the name Kinect; however, I don't know if Sony will remain quiet about the situation. (Kinect, PS2, Xbox 360)

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)
OneSneakyMofo  +   1659d ago
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.

I think the lawsuits will be all about "I've played Kinect and acsidentally kill all my family".

There's no case here. But Xbox should of just named project natal, "Natal". Sounded good IMO.

They are right PS2 Kinetic was the first thing that came to my mind when I heard the name of Kinect
