December 23, 2009

Law 360 (subscription required) recently reported on Atari’s $100 million counterclaim against Hasbro Inc. in their battle over a global licensing agreement for the video rights to role-playing game “Dungeons & Dragons.” The counterclaims filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Rhode Island says Hasbro’s lawsuit seeking to break Atari’s exclusive licensing agreement to create, develop and market video games for the role-playing game franchise is an attempt to coerce Atari into selling back the license on terms favorable to Hasbro.

Kyle C. Bisceglie, Herbert C. Ross, Peter M. Sartorius and Charles R. Fritch represent Atari.
