Paltalk Sues Multiplayer Game Publishers Over Chat Technology

Paltalk, a provider of online chat and instant messaging technology, has filed patent infringement claims against a number of massively multiplayer online game publishers, alleging they are using its real-time messaging technology without licenses, Mass High Tech reported.

Among the defendants named were “World of Warcraft” publisher Activision Blizzard, “Lord of the Rings Online” publisher Turbine; “Aion” publisher NCsoft; and Jagex, the makers of “RuneScape.”

New York-based Paltalk previously sued Microsoft for violating its patent in the Xbox game “Halo”; Microsoft eventually settled and agreed to license Paltalk’s technology.

Paltalk acquired the patents in question from now-defunct VoIP software firm HearMe in 2002.

I wonder how far Peptalk will come with this lawsuit.
