Default some guy Sues Rockstar for "stolen" GTA idea

IGN:

December 22, 2003 - Scottish computer consultant Mark Gallagher has filed a lawsuit against Rockstar North, claiming that the company (formerly DMA Design) stole his idea for the game one decade ago.


In 1993, Gallagher showed Rockstar North a demonstration disc of a game that he had been working on and he claims that many of these elements went into the original Grand Theft Auto that came out in 1997.

Gallagher claims that he was interviewing with Rockstar North for a position and showed them his demo disc of his game Crime Inc. to show his skills. He never got the job and the disc was never returned to him. Rockstar North sees things in a different light and will be contending the case in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Why Gallagher has waited so long to make his claim has not been announced. The games are familiar to anyone who owns a PS2 as GTA III and GTA: Vice City have gone on to become two of the biggest sellers on the console.

Very good question, sounds like there is more to the story, the guy should have asked for his demo back if he thought it was a good idea, for one...

But, he might have a case based on what I heard, then AGAIN, we haven't heard Rockstar North's side of the story either.

Yeah but doesn't it sound odd that he comes back whinning after almost ten years?

Well it's his own Damn Fault. He Showed them HIS IDea, And Apparently they Took it From HIm. His Loss. I Think Since Rockstar is Getting A Lot OF Lawsuits and Blames right now, He Picked this Time To Jump of the Bandwagon.

Oh yes, video games control teenager's brains. I now feel the need to befriend the obese son of a Cuban cafe owner, arm myself with weapons and blow up a glue factory!
