All This Fuss Over a Plastic Guitar

| | Comments (0)
Recently, Activision and its subsidiary RedOctane filed suit against The Ant Commandos because of TAC's guitar controller. Now, TAC has filed a countersuit against Activision and Red Octane.
TAC asserts that since its part owner (Topway Electrical Appliance) released a guitar controller (the Magical Guitar) for the PlayStation in 1999 and RedOctane investigated Topway's process, the current Guitar Hero controllers infringe on TAC's processes and products.


Not only has TAC filed a countersuit, TAC has filed for an injunction preventing Activision from selling Guitar Hero in a bundle with the controller due to unfair competition.
