Koei Tecmo Being Sued by Capcom!


A report done by Sankei states that apparently Capcom is suing Koei Tecmo for patent infringement. Apparently a patent Capcom filed in 2002 is being infringed in over 50 titled video games from Koei Tecmo, some including Samurai Warriors and Dynasty Warriors. The amount Capcom is suing for is around 900 yen (about $9 million U.S. dollars) and they are also aiming to acquire license fees of about 10% and hoping to suspend the sale of several different video game titles. So far all we know is what lays before us, but Koei Tecmo still states that there is no infringement but not much else has been released yet. Personally I haven’t played many, if any Koei Tecmo games, but if there is any infringement i can bet that Capcom wont stop till the suit is in their favor.
