Oculus Rift is one of the biggest names in virtual reality right now as the technology seems to be a growing force in the industry, with Sony’s own Project Morpheus in the mix as well. However, Oculus VR may have hit a snag as Zenimax Media and its subsidiary id Software have filed a lawsuit against Oculus VR and its founder Palmer Luckey.
This lawsuit alleges the illegal misappropriation of trade secrets involving virtual reality technology, as well as infringing upon ZeniMax Media’s copyrights and trademarks. ZeniMax says that all attempts to resolve the problem amicably have been unsuccessful, so they have now had to take the legal route. Robert Altman, Chairman & CEO of ZeniMax, had the following to say about the suit.
Intellectual property forms the foundation of our business. We cannot ignore the unlawful exploitation of intellectual property that we develop and own, nor will we allow misappropriation and infringement to go unaddressed.
