Play.tm is reporting the following news:
Thom Kidrin’s Worlds.com outfit are in the midst of suing game makers NCsoft, alleging that the Korean MMO giants infringe Worlds.com copyrights through their various persistent online universes.
Kidrin says that if the lawsuit against NCsoft is successful then his firm will go after Second Life’s Linden Labs and – the big daddy of them all – Blizzard.
The executive confirmed legal proceedings a few months ago, claiming that Worlds.com owns the rights to create virtual, scalable worlds encompassing thousands of players.
Whether the case against NCsoft will actually prove a success remains to be seen – but we imagine Blizzard and Linden are watching proceedings with intense interest.
