IGT Settles Copyright Case With G2C

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

Land gaming giant IGT has settled a copyright infringement case against slot designer GC2 over copyright infringement and IP licensing rights.

The agreement was struck and entered in the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, and will see IGT gaining ownership of 30 slot machine titles that were developed by GC2. These games include the likes of Lucky Lion Fish, Coyote Moon, and Kingpin Bowling, which were central to the dispute. Terms of the agreement weren't made public.

Speaking about the agreement GC2 president Frank Warzecha said, "GC2 and its attorneys, Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale, are pleased with this settlement agreement as it resolves the three years of successful litigation and allows both companies to focus their attention on the development of new land-based and online games that will contribute to successful consumer products."

I remember I've been reading about this before as well...surely that case took too much time...3 years...but finally there's a decision and I guess from IGT are pretty pleased with it...not so from GC2 I guess who obviously have stolen some ideas there...
