Buzztime sues Sony over Buzz!

By Patrick Garratt, Tuesday, 29 January 2008 12:33 GMT

California-based Buzztime Entertainment has filed a suit against SCEE, says this, alleging that the Buzz! series of games, developed by Relentless in Brighton, UK, infringes its trademarks. Buzztime makes trivia games for bars and restaurants, apparently played by 13 million people a month.

According to that Gamespot report, “The Buzztime Entertainment trademarks cover uses of the terms for ‘entertainment in the nature of interactive games played via interactive television and an interactive global computer network,’ and ‘equipment for playing a plug and play game, namely, video game machines for use with televisions, video game interactive remote control units, video game cartridges, and interactive video game programs,’ among other things.”

Buzztime wants all infringing products recalled and… destroyed. They should go the whole hog and try to get them ejected into space. More on this as it unfolds.
