Default Sega sues over Simpsons

http://www.gamespot.com/all/news/news_6085112.html

Sega of America has filed a suit against EA and Fox alleging that The Simpsons Road Rage deliberately copies and imitates its Crazy Taxi games.

According to a recent Reuters report, Sega of America has filed a suit against publisher Electronic Arts, developer Radical Games, the Fox Filmed Entertainment division of Fox Entertainment, and Vivendi Universal's Fox Interactive unit. Filed in a San Francisco federal court, the suit alleges that the 2001 game The Simpsons Road Rage was designed to 'deliberately copy and imitate' its Crazy Taxi games.

Sega holds a U.S. patent known as the '138 patent' on Crazy Taxi, and has cited a number of reviews from video game publications of The Simpsons Road Rage in which the game was described as being very similar to Crazy Taxi. In our own review of Road Rage we noted that the game could perhaps best be described as 'Crazy Taxi in Springfield'.

Sega has requested that the court stop the sale and import of The Simpsons Road Rage, which has sold more than a million copies to date, recall copies of the game currently in retail, and award damages for lost profits. We'll bring you more information on this story as soon as it becomes available.

Given that the game was a fairly blatant rip-off, I'm mostly surprised that this didn't happen sooner.

Thoughts?

HA! Sega is looking for money anywhere they can possible put their claws on since they are almost extinct.Crying won't help them since to my knowledge it doesn't vilate any patents since the game is completely different from Crazy Taxi. The basis of the game night look the same but not a single character, vehicle etc looks like Crazy Taxi. I Predict this will be dismissed and probably appealed to be dimissed again.

hey who doesn't care about Crazy Taxi games? Those games are fun. But they do get kinda boring after awhile if you do own them.
