29 March 2004: Innovative hardware/software specialist In2Games today announces legal proceedings against Gametrac Europe Ltd in the High Court of Justice, London.
In August this year, In2Games will launch Gametrak™, a remarkable patented 3D controller for PS2 which will be bundled with the revolutionary fighting game, Black Wind. Debuted at the recent Games Developer Conference in San Jose, California, Gametrak™ proved the show’s biggest hit, with admiring crowds constantly swarming the company’s booth to watch and play Gametrak™.
In2Games has become aware that another company, Gametrac Europe Limited, is attempting to launch a games-related product under the brand ‘Gametrac’. This has caused confusion with some of In2Games’ customers and press contacts.
‘Gametrak™’ has been used as a trademark of In2Games Limited since 2000, was filed as a trademark with the UK Patent Office in February 2001, and has been a registered trademark of In2Games Limited since July 2001.
In order to prevent further confusion with industry and consumers alike, In2Games Limited has therefore commenced legal proceedings against Gametrac Europe Limitedand its parent company, US company Tiger Telematics Inc (P.K. TIGR), in the High Court of Justice, London and, on Wednesday 24 March, obtained an Order for the trial of the dispute to be heard urgently. If successful, In2Games is seeking an injunction restraining Gametrac/Tiger Telematics from using the marks Gametrak, Gametrac or any mark confusingly similar.
“Having spent almost four years bringing Gametrak™ to market, including lengthy and costly patent and trademark registrations globally, we will act decisively to protect our brands and products,” commented Elliott Myers, In2Games’ Managing Director.
This Gametrac unit is going to be a HUGE hit!
What’s more, the shares of Tiger telematic, the Parent Company behind Gametrac, are now (01/20/04) priced around 25 cents. The symbol’s TIGR and in Sparky’s opinion they’re a steal at any price below 50 cents!
