Sweet! I think we found ourselves this year's Tim Langdell!

Let the hatred flow through you, Escapist.

Ok so here is a quote from the linked article:

"You can really live well on $10-15 million in assets," he said.

"You should set your lifestyle around something that's reasonable and then treat the rest of it for what it really is, which is a business success score."

Now if that is true then this prick should just shut the doors on his company, Retire, and forget all about anything ever "made". He has all the money he needs now go take a long walk off a short cliff and get lost. The only reason he continues to do this crap is PURE GREED!! Gluttony is a sin there Van boy.

So, this guy sues a videogame (with the wrong name) for being a security device. I'm pretty sure these things existed before the guy was even born.

This might possibly be one of those big lawsuits for the history books that might actually make something change. Or, it might be another miniscule case like when the Zorro company sued Mars for having the red M&M wear merely a simple black mask.

Oddly enough, this totally reminds me of a situation where someone was sneaking Minecraft into my old high school, and the teacher kept calling it "Mindcraft".

The man spends tens of thousands of dollars on the INDIE BUNDLES. I don't even WANT to know what he'll do with the rest of Mojang backing him on a legal issue.
Go bankrupt, from the sound of your description re: how he spends money?

Hmm, I see the fanboys are out in force. People: calling for someone's death is not an appropriate response to an intellectual property law suit.

(Facepalm) *SIGH* Some people just don't learn, do they? I'm getting so sick and tired of copyright debates...

Is there a way that Notch can just castrate him judicially? Like a counter-suit for being an epic douche-tard?

This fat bastard needs to be put in his place. Go on, Notch, drain this bloated parasite of all his money and make him bankrupt.

I for one welcome patent lawyer trolls. Maybe this is how we get patent and copyright laws reformed or abolished for software and methods.

Patent trolls wouldn't be such a problem if they fixed patent law to stop protecting things unrealised by their supposed owners.

That guy may be rich as hell, but he's still an asshole and a drain on society. The most annoying part is how he is on a high horse and acts like he has the ethical high ground.

Well, if there is one thing we know EA has some talent for, it's throwing IP trolls in front of a bus. Ask Tim "Edgy McEdgerson" Langdell.
