Microsoft sued over gaming patents

PalTalk Holdings said today it has sued Microsoft for infringing on its patents for multiplayer computer games. PalTalk said that it owns the technology for communicating in games through a group messaging server, which can be used to set up groups for online game play.

The Xbox console uses this technology without PalTalk’s permission, according to PalTalk’s complaint, which was filed in federal court in Texas. The company is asking for tens of millions of dollars in damages and a court order directing Microsoft to stop its infringing behavior, according to Bloomberg.

PalTalk, based in New York City, has a messenger program that allows members to create their own voice and video chat rooms.

Microsoft hasn’t responded to the suit yet in court.
