Zenimax Win $500 Million From Oculus Lawsuit
Zenimax have been awarded $500 million in their lawsuit against Palmer Luckey and Oculus, who were also cleared of misappropriating trade secrets.
Oculus have been ordered to pay $250 million for breaking a non-disclosure agreement with Zenimax alongside copyright infringement. Oculus and Luckey each will pay $50 million for false designation, while Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe have to pay $150 million for the same breach.
What Luckey and Oculus will be happy to hear is that they have been cleared of misappropriating trade secrets, which was thought to be the most serious claim to stem from the lawsuit.
Talking to Polygon, a spokesperson from Oculus said they had mixed feelings:
The heart of this case was about whether Oculus stole ZeniMax’s trade secrets, and the jury found decisively in our favor. We’re obviously disappointed by a few other aspects of today’s verdict, but we are undeterred.
