In the last days of 2008, the Massachusetts based company Worlds.com decided to sue NCsoft saying that the MMO developer had violated their US patent 7,181,690, "System and Method for Enabling Users to Interact in a Virtual Space." That apparently isn't the end of the matter as the Business Insider web site reports that Worlds.com is planning to go after other MMO publishers.
Worlds.com CEO Thom Kidrin is quoted as saying that if their court battle with NCsoft is successful, he will "absolutely" file suits against other MMO publishers. That includes Activision Blizzard, the publisher of World of Warcraft. While Kidrin says that all they really want is for companies to pay them licensing fees for their patent they might have an uphill battle in court over their claims. As we have reported before, Worlds.com filed for their patent in 2000, well after the first MMO games like Ultima Online and Everquest launched.
