Getting a bit petty isn't it now?

TBH I do wonder about how worth it these things are. If you're not successful the costs are massive, even for a huge company like Zenimax. Going after a player like Samsung seems like a questionable move as they could just drag it out for a long time if they felt they were justified. I may not have much love for either company, but it doesn't really work well for VR at the end of the day.

Given Zenimax was founded by a lawyer who was barred from banking after a [u=http://www.nytimes.com/1998/02/04/business/clifford-and-altman-settle-with-fed-over-bcci.html]corruption scandal[/url]; started Zenimax and partnered with Bethesda; and then forced out the founder of Bethesda, it is surprising they still actually make any games. They certainly do like to swing their IP around as widely as absolutely possible (aren't single-word trademarks great?).

The whole tech industry is really just degenerating more and more into one big circle jerk of lawsuits.

I fully expect both Facebook and Samsung to follow the tobacco industry's lead and employ a scorched earth policy towards this lawsuit.

It's a $2.5billion company against a $60billion and $230billion company, they can both afford to just appeal, appeal, appeal until Zenimax gets bored or is forced to drop the suit by escalating costs. Rather like Philip Morris the cost of this one case is immaterial compared to the potential cost of being seen to lose it.

Why is it Samsung problem? They licenced from oculus, they didnt steal anything.

If oculus is guilty then it is them that should compensate Zenimax for all the gear VR headsets sold not Samsung.
