"How many people are aware of what The Tetris Company is
doing? They're claiming they own copyright on "the look
and feel and trade dress" of Tetris. They are attempting
to remove all unauthorised tetris games!"
that there are dozens of tetris clones (many distributed
under the GPL) I suspect their quest is futile. I'm not sure
how I feal about this one. Their claim is probably legit,
and the above story compares this to the industry allowing
only one game in a genre, but tetris is tetris- its not a block
game genre, its a specific game with rules we are all familiar
with. Different side scrollers have different rules. Hmm.
Wierd case. What do you think?
