both unless they had something planned, would be too much a waste of
money. Game.com is not moving on shelves too well. Perhaps they want to
do something in the way of video games but need a largely remembered
name like Atari. Suing for patent and copyright infingement could get
you good money depending on who or what is involvled. If it is simply
Jon Doe's Video Game Inc infinged on the patent of a design of
something totally meaningless by todays standard, you wouldnt get much,
but if it was Nintendo, Sony or Sega you could fetch more (Atari did
once already on Sega) especially if it had to do with something in the
Playstation console itself that couldnt be changed they could claim
damages millions and maybe make quite a bit of money.
