Zynga the company behind run away sucess Zynga Poker – the site that launched a million fishes - is about to get into a court battle over intellectual property rights. Agincourt Gaming claim that they ‘own’ the “credits-based online gaming and a prize redemption system based on the outcome of game play.” They also say via their legal representatives that “Agincourt’s patents cover the most lucrative aspects of online social gaming — including those comprising the bulk of Zynga’s revenues — as they contain the crucial link that allows for global, interactive prize redemption over the Internet.” While all this is going on Zynga is about to be launched on the stock markets at a eye watering $20 billion. Busy days indeed.
