Worlds.com has reportedly settled its patent infringement lawsuit with NCsoft. The terms remain confidential and as of this morning neither company has a press release on its website. Worlds.com filed the suit on Christmas eve in 2008 after rattling its patent saber months earlier. To some, it is surprising the case lasted this long, due to the extensive amount of prior art that surfaced after the suit was announced.
In March 2009, Worlds.com CEO Tom Kidrin also boldly proclaimed that if the litigation was successful it would also sue other industry leaders. If Kidrin remains true to his word, we will likely know soon if they deemed the litigation successful.
