The battle between Gibson and Activision has started. Gibson has filed a lawsuit stating that Activision''s Guitar Hero design is an infringement on the copyright of their 1999 guitar simulation technology. Gibson wants Activision to either file a license under their patent or halt making Guitar Hero games. Activision feels it has an "implied license" since Gibson waited three years to make the claim. Visit Reuters or the LA Times for more details.
eBay alert: they''re taking bids on an Ace Frehley Les Paul (closes March 16th). Want it now, you say? Only if you''re willing to dish out $100,000.
