BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/02/14 -- A lawsuit (CV 13-07380 CBM (PLAx)) by Activision Publishing, Inc., a subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (ATVI), against Worlds Inc. (OTCBB: WDDD) and Worlds Online, Inc. (OTCBB: WORX) has been dismissed with prejudice.
After Worlds Inc. filed a patent infringement suit against Activision Blizzard, Inc., Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. and Activision Publishing, Inc. (Activision), in early October 2013, Activision Publishing, Inc. filed a lawsuit claiming patent infringement against Worlds Inc. and Worlds Online Inc., in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. Activision alleged that Worlds violates U.S. Patent No. 6,014,145 entitled "Navigation with optimum viewpoints in three-dimensional workspace interactive displays having three-dimensional objects with collision barriers" and U.S. Patent No. 5,883,628 entitled "Climability: property for objects in 3-D virtual environments."
"We are happy with the court outcome. We and our legal counsel, Susman Godfrey LLP, believed the case had no merit, but instead was simply a tactical legal maneuver to tax Worlds' financial resources and distract legal counsel from the primary litigation against Activision in Massachusetts," stated Thom Kidrin, CEO for Worlds Inc. and Worlds Online. "With that matter disposed permanently, we are now focusing on the scheduling of the Markman Hearing date in our patent infringement suit against Activision et al."
