NCsoft Sued over MMOG Tech

Virtual Worlds News has word that Worlds.com has filed suit against NCsoft for patent infringement for violation of a patent called System and Method for Enabling Users to Interact in a Virtual Space. They say this patent is violated by City of Heroes, City of Villains, Dungeon Runners, Exteel, Guild Wars, Lineage, Lineage II, and Tablula Rasa, many of which predate the February 20, 2007 date of the patent, though it was filed in 2000. From the general wording of the patent, it seems probable that other MMOG purveyors may be hit by similar legal action, as a follow-up on Virtual Worlds News suggests. Thanks Gamasutra.

the patent was beyond vague.

It won't be viable.

its like saying "this patent is about a liquid drink in which drink will enter your mouth and you will drink" only worded much worse.
