Earlier this month, Activision
and Gibson Guitar Corporation
(the guitar manufacturer) settled the year-old litigation over a patent dispute
, according to court documents obtained by Gamastura
. With all the lawsuits
we've been writing about recently, you'd think we'd see more posts like this every once in a while, right?
The terms of the settlement haven't been released as of yet and we've requested comment from both companies. Confusing the situation even more is Gibson's recent loss
in ... umm ... another
case with the publisher, we suppose? Perhaps the two companies will explain.
Activision remains engaged on another music/rhythm game front with Genius Products ... via 7 Studios, its development studio, over Scratch: The Ultimate DJ
. Like us, you'll just have to wait patiently until the tantalizing
results of that lawsuit come to light.
