Activision vs Worlds Inc

Activision vs Worlds Inc

[EN]: It has been a year and a half since Worlds Inc. filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Activision Blizzard, Inc. and its two subsidiaries in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts.

Now, it’s Worlds Inc and Worlds Online Inc.’s turn to be taken to court. Some hours ago, Activision Blizzard mentioned via a press release its subsidiary Activision Publishing has filed also a patent infringement lawsuit against Worlds.

According to the press release, Activision says Worlds has infringed on two patents:

  • U.S. Patent No. 6,014,145 – “Navigation with optimum viewpoints in three-dimensional workspace interactive displays having three-dimensional objects with collision barriers”
  • U.S. Patent No. 5,883,628 – “Climability: property for objects in 3-D virtual environments.”

The Worlds Player software is the product that Activision says it is breaking the law.

With the first trial still pending and a new one just starting today, is there any chance for both companies to come to an agreement in the near future?

[ES]: Ha pasado un año y medio desde que Worlds Inc. presentó una demanda por violación de patente en contra Activision Blizzard, Inc. y sus dos filiales en el Tribunal de Distrito de EE.UU. para el Distrito de Massachusetts.

Ahora, es el turno de Worlds Inc y Worlds Online Inc. para ser llevados a los tribunales. Hace algunas horas, Activision Blizzard mencionó vía un comunicado de prensa que su subsidiaria Activision Publishing  ha presentado también una demanda por violación de patente contra Worlds.

De acuerdo con el comunicado de prensa , Activision dice que Worlds ha infringido dos patentes:

Patente de EE.UU. No. 6.014.145 – “Navegación con puntos de vista óptimos en pantallas interactivas del espacio de trabajo en tres dimensiones con objetos tridimensionales con barreras de choque”.
Patente de EE.UU. No. 5.883.628 – “Climabilidad : la propiedad de los objetos de los entornos virtuales en 3D”.

El software Worlds Player es el producto que Activision dice que está violando la ley.

Con el primer juicio aún pendiente y uno nuevo que acaba de empezar hoy, ¿hay alguna posibilidad de que ambas empresas lleguen a un acuerdo en un futuro próximo?
