CIG Off the Hook v Crytek

Recommended Posts

A rather lengthy but interesting Video by Leonard French - An actual copyright Attorney. Leonard goes through the CIG response to the Crytek attempted cash grab. Longwinded, but interesting.

Yea, it doesn't deal with some of the issues raised in the complaint such as sharing code improvements, but really, since the contract seems to suggest that there are no monetary damages allowed (??), that seems moot.

 

Perhaps in the absolute best case for Crytek maybe they could force CIG to give them some of the game engine tech they've developed?

 

In any case it doesn't seem like the lawsuit will be on any real consequence, and may even get thrown out entirely.

I think you're right. The contract pretty much wipes out the vast majority of the arguments that Crytek came up with. I'd go further and say that whoever came up with the lawsuit might have been better placed if they'd actually seen the contract first!
