More lawsuit fun: WotC sues Pokemon USA, uses the word “tortuous”

Wizards alleges “patent infringement, breach of contract, misappropriation of trade secrets, tortuous interference with a business relationship, unjust enrichment and other claims“. Pokemon USA says, “We were sued the day after our distribution agreement with Wizards ended […] We are confident that we’ve acted both legally and fairly with respect to Wizards”. Mammon, I choose you!


  1. All those poor ex-WotC employees… Makes ya wonder if Wizards feels they’ve “gotta catch’em all.” *snicker*

  2. Only those former employees who are giving away the company’s trade secrets. I hear it is a patent infringement (i.e., trading card game method of play), which WotC have filed with USPTO back in 1997.

  3. Yeah, it’s modern day retelling of a classic fable. You know… the ‘tortious’ and the hare? *grin*
