    So, it's becoming a tit for tat bullshit type of case, at least as far as the media is concerned. No big surprise there.
    The spindoctors on both sides will be in full fuck you mode at least until this thing goes to trial. Most likely, Zenimax will try to get Oculus to settle.

    Because simply butchering Wolfenstein, Doom and Quake wasn't enough for those hacks.

    That is not very restrictive really. A lot of them try to take all work you do even outside of work on your own computer. This just protects work you actually did on site...which means nothing.

    So really this lawsuit should be thrown out unless they can drudge up actual source code from zenimax that is used in oculus rift...which doesn't even make any fucking sense. It's like saying someone stole parts from your lawnmower to use to fix their skateboard...I mean wut? :lol:

    So yeah by any remotely noncorrupt judge this should have been thrown out a long time ago.

    Are you saying that US courts have ever not been corrupt?

    I've sued people quite a few times actually and always got a fair result even if not exactly what I wanted. I also know a judge and used to boink his assistant and heard about all the cases...some of them involved a lot of money but they were obviously not completely paid off.

    I don't think US courts have always been absolutely infallible but now that we have a shitload of jews and mexicans and all kind of other shit in the mix who don't even understand let alone try to uphold some kind of objectivity they are rapidly becoming a complete joke.

    Any case will have legs when it's backed by facebook money.

    That's a lot of dough. That should help Bethesda to make a leap of faith and purchase Obsidian.

    Why did they have to pay at all if the tech wasn't stolen?
