A Boston court ruled in Blizzard’s favor last week against a lawsuit brought on by Worlds Inc. (aka Worlds.com) that claimed the studio infringed on four patents that Worlds Inc. made in the mid-1990s.
This ruling is the latest development in a case that spans back to 2012, when Worlds Inc. filed the suit. The company claimed that Blizzard violated patents that showed the invention of “a method for enabling a first user to interact with other users in a virtual space,” among other items. A U.S. District Judge ruled that these patents are invalid because those inventions already existed prior to the filings.
