Nearly two months ago Epic Games filed a lawsuit against Acceleration Bay LLC seeking declaratory judgment from the court in regard to allegations that Epic was using technology owned by AB in one of its many patents. Acceleration Bay filed a motion to dismiss on lack of subject matter jurisdiction (wrong court) as well as lack of controversy. In order to receive a declaratory judgment, a plaintiff must show the court that there is very likely to be a lawsuit over the matter. “The Court should dismiss this action because there is no immediate case or controversy between Epic Games and Acceleration Bay. Epic Games seeks declaratory judgment of non-infringement of seven patents owned by Acceleration Bay. But in the pre-suit communications that Epic Games alleges gave rise to this action, Acceleration Bay did not provide Epic Games with any claim charts or infringement analysis and Acceleration Bay did not threaten Epic Games with litigation. Instead, the parties were engaged in … [Read more...] about IPE Update: Acceleration Bay Files MTD Against Epic Games

If you’ve ever wandered through Booty Bay in World of Warcraft and thought that it’d be much cooler if the town featured a bunch of mannequins spouting gibberish and getting mad at one another for leaving dirty dishes in the middle of the hallway, you are probably a fan of The Sims 4. And now you can combine these two things with a complete recreation of Booty Bay in The Sims 4, right down to the exact placement of wooden crates. Yes, this is a thing. There’s a 40-minute video showing it off! Not only is this a cool video to watch, you can download and play around with the Sims-ified Booty Bay, as well as exploring other creations of user Sati Sim including Dalaran and the Darkmoon Faire.

Yesterday was a bit of a trying day for me personally.

I was able to see what I thought was the ActivityPub community in its native state, talking about interesting things openly and publicly and willing to friend each other just as easily.

I started out on Mastodon.cloud which was a large … [Read more...] about Tarnished Hope
