Gibson sues Harmonix, EA over Rock Band

rockbandWith the taste of dumb lawsuits still fresh in its mouth, Gibson has decided to sue Harmonix, creators of the video game Rock Band.

The reason for the suit is the same as the one against Activision and various retailers–the same old 1999 patent for “simulating a musical performance with a musical instrument”.

The patent involves a “3-D headset”…which to my doesn’t sound a whole lot like the fake guitar, fake drums, or microphone in Rock Band but its not the first ridiculous sounding lawsuit and it certainly won’t be the last.
