ZeniMax sued Oculus VR and founder Palmer Luckey over trade secrets related to the Oculus Rift virtual-reality headset, and now we have the defendants' side of the story.
A representative of Oculus shared the company's court filing, viewable in full below. "ZeniMax's Complaint falsely claims ownership in Oculus VR technology in a transparent attempt to take advantage of the [$2 billion] Oculus VR sale to Facebook," it reads.
Oculus claims that there is "not a line of ZeniMax code or any of its technology" in any of its products. "Until the Facebook deal, and the perceived chance for a quick payout, ZeniMax never raised any claim of infringement against Oculus VR, undoubtedly because ZeniMax never has contributed any intellectual property or technology to Oculus VR."
About what we expected when ZeniMax first filed its complaint, then.
