Jury Awards Gaming Industry Giant ZeniMax $500 Million in case against Oculus VR and its Founder Luckey Palmer
Last Saturday Patently Apple posted a report titled "The Lawsuit against Facebook's Oculus by Major Gaming Industry Player ZeniMax now in Deliberation." ZeniMax is a major gaming house with titles like Doom, Quake, Fallout, Rage, Wolfenstein and many, many more. ZeniMax sued Oculus VR and founder Luckey Palmer and today a jury awarded them $500 million.
The jury found that the founder of Oculus VR Palmer Luckey had violated the terms of a non-disclosure agreement with ZeniMax. All of the counts in the case circled around to ZeniMax Media believing that they were instrumental to the success of Oculus VR in a way that they should be compensated for. The jury has already handed down judgments on a couple of claims. The big Claim was ZeniMax claiming that its trade secrets revealed to Luckey under NDA and known to a handful of ex-ZeniMax employees now at Oculus have been used to build the Rift headset’s core technologies.
