Spikey Bits is reporting that a games store owner and legal council David Moore is suing Games Workshop for $62.5m in an American court.
As the Spikey Bits video notes this lawsuit seems to have gone under the radar. It’s two months old. Indeed, a search on Google News is not fruitful, doesn’t find much in the way of supporting coverage, however Spikey Bits cites a few sources.
Games Workshops alleged crimes? Fraud, Price Fixing, Tortuous Interference, Breach of Contract, Unjust Enrichment, Restraint of Trade, Conspiracy and Antitrust Violations.
Spikey Bit don’t link to court sites but have PDFs of the documents up on their site. For now the links are for the Complaint, Affidavit in Support of Complaint, Orders of Instructions and Scheduling & Discovery.
Why so much? Spikey Bits says that Moore is going to use any victory to create a fund and use it move Games Workshop’s IP to public domain.
Big news or pinch of salt time? You can read Spikey Bits’ full break down. If you watch the video then 20 minutes the host talks about DoS attacks coming out of Nottingham, England, taking down retailers they dislike.
