Roll the dice, win a lawsuit

Who says the small guy always loses? Apparently, Crystal Caste just won a lawsuit against Hasbro over a dice design patent. Michael Bowling of Crystal Caste was awarded $446,182 in royalties for Hasbro’s patent violation, caused by the game industry giant’s use of a die patented by Bowling in a version of Monopoly – do not pass go, do not use patented designs without permission. Couldn’t Hasbro afford to buy a few? Certainly buying in bulk would’ve resulted in a great deal.
