In the midst of what could be looked at as a semi-hostile takeover by Sammy, Sega has taken an action that could have industry-killing implications if successful. According to this link, Sega has basically decided to sue the makers of Simpsons Road Rage because it ripped off Crazy Taxi. http://www.gamespot.com/all/news/news_6085112.html While I don't think anyone can deny that Road Rage is derived from Crazy Taxi on some level, a win by Sega here would set a dangerous precedent. What if the Konami decides to sue the makers of Metal Slug because the two games are similar? Or what if Nintendo decides to sue every company that has ever created 2-d or 3-d platformers because they borrow too heavily from the Mario games? Then, the makers of Pitfall sue Nintendo? Lets hope Sega is laughed out of court here, otherwise every entry into an established game genre is an invitation for a lawsuit.
