Taito Grumpy About Recent German Space Invasion
Taito Corporation is, shall we say, pissed. The Computer Game Museum Berlin hosted an installation called "Space Invaders: Die Jubilaumsshow!" (Space Invaders: The Anniversary Show) and Douglas Edric Stanley displayed an installation at the Games Convention in Leipzig called "Invaders!," both of which used content from Taito's classic coin-operated arcade game without permission. Taito is currently considering its options, but hopes to punish those it perceives to have infringed on its properties. Good thing Andy Warhol isn't around to upset them further.
