Worlds.com CEO: If we beat NCsoft in court, Blizzard's next


Worlds.com boss Thom Kidrin has told SAI that he's "absolutely" going to sue Linden Lab and Blizzard over the fact they've created virtual worlds in Second Life and World of Warcraft.

Kidrin claims the idea of a scalable virtual world with thousands of users is his company's patented IP, and has already sued NCsoft over the issue.

He said WoW and Second Life would his next targets, assuming his NCsoft case turns out favourably for Worlds.com.

There's a heap of background on Kidrin's patent through the link, should you feel the need.
