"In a lawsuit that is sending ripples through the once-friendly online casual games industry, a Seattle company called Big Fish Games Inc. is suing a California competitor called iWin Inc. for stealing trade secrets and other confidential business data. "The suit, filed May 8 in U.S. District Court in Seattle, alleges that iWin employees used stolen or counterfeit log-in IDs and passwords to gain access to the computer system of Macrovision Corp., a company that handles copyright protection and online sales for Big Fish." Does anyone have a print subscription to Business Journal that can tell us more? http://www.bizjournals.com/seattle/stories/2007/05/21/story2.html?hbx= Is this the first major lawsuit of the casual games industry? Has the industry reached its breaking point? Will we see more lawsuits begin to come out of the woodwork, as developers and publishers learn they can make more money hoarding patents and pursuing copyright lawsuits? Or are we set to become a bunch of dirty pirates, left to steal more than just game ideas from our neighbors?
