FiveRings (818409) writes "Businessinsider.com has a story on Worlds.com indicating that they somehow inherited the patent on virtual worlds from the Starlight Starbright Foundation and is taking it to court against NCsoft. If successful, he will press on and sue Second Life and World of Warcraft as well. IncGamers adds, "The case against NCSoft is being held in East Texas which, according to Business Insider, is a jurisdiction that is known to have ruled in favour of the plaintiff against foreigners in patent cases once or twice before.""
