Gaikai being sued for patent infringement by T5 Labs
When Sony purchased Gaikai for $380 million, I suppose they felt it was an easy way to get into the cloud gaming space without all that expensive R&D. T5 Labs shattered that image by claiming that Gaikai has “committed and continues to commit acts of infringement” in a Delaware court. The same patent T5 tried to sue OnLive over in 2011. Here is the official indictment:
T5 is seeking monetary compensation for past damages and all future activity. Sony refuses to comment and KB might have just gotten a free pass. The lawyers are going to be mighty busy with this one.
I have faith in our patent system. lol j/k
So basically this is a patent troll who is squatting on a patent for & suing anybody with cloud based game streaming services.
wait whats the t5 again?
Patent Squatters - The bane of the gaming industry
Yeah... this isn't going to be that long of a suit. It's going to end faster and be more on Gaikai side. Sorry T5, but I don't see this going in your favor.
T5.... T5... T5... NOPE never heard of them... So really who cares? Patent hogger.
