Recognicorp Files New Patent Infringement Action Against CCP Over Popular Video Game Eve Online
In particular, Recognicorp identifies Eve Online, a popular online multi-player video game, as an infringing product. According to the complaint, the Eve Online product infringes the '303 Patent by including features such as "character creation and customization that allow the selection of a facial feature, incorporation of the facial feature into a composite image, and instructions for modifying the selected facial feature image that has been incorporated into the composite image."
Recognicorp requests that the Court grant an injunction, award damages, and declare the case exceptional under 35 U.S.C. § 285. The case has been assigned action number 1:12-cv-02410, and has been assigned to Senior Judge Robert L. Vining, Jr.
