If you’re unfamiliar with Worlds.com, you’ll have to read up on the company’s asinine history sometime. The company created some shitty 3-D environment back in the dot-com boom days and because of this, it feels it owns all the patents pertaining to 3-D gaming. Now CEO Thom Kidrin is pulling a real douche move and is looking to sue the makers of Second Life and World of Warcraft.
Right now, NCSoft is in court with Worlds.com, battling over IP rights to games like City of Heroes and Guild Wars. If Worlds.com wins, we could see a lot of trouble on the horizon from websites with shady patents. In the mean time, 1999 called. It wants its shitty websites back.
