In case suing the Guitar Hero franchise and various retailers isn't enough, Gibson has also filed a lawsuit in the Federal District Court in Tennessee against EA, MTV Networks and Harmonix, claiming that Rock Band also infringes on that very same patent. Although Gibson Guitar contacted the parties involved in good faith, it received no reply in a timely manner with an intent to enter into negotiations for a patent license agreement, so there was no alternative but to bring the suit.
