Taito Considering Legal Action Against Games Convention

by Rainier on Aug. 22, 2008 @ 9:37 a.m. PDT

TAITO issued a statement that the "Invaders!" installation displayed at the Leipzig Games Convention was produced entirely without TAITO’s knowledge, that the use of the Space Invaders content is unauthorized, and considering legal actions.

TAITO Corporation today stated unequivocally that the “Invaders!” installation by Douglas Edric Stanley and displayed at the Games Convention held in Leipzig, Germany was produced entirely without TAITO’s knowledge and that the use of the world-famous Space Invaders content was wholly unauthorized. The “Space Invaders: Die Jubiläumsshow!” (“Space Invaders: the Anniversary Show”) exhibition of the Computer Game Museum Berlin hosting the installation was likewise planned and presented without TAITO’s knowledge and authorization.

TAITO is seriously considering all available options-including legal actions against the infringer and, if necessary, the Games Convention exhibitor involved-in order to end this unauthorized and impermissible misuse of the Space Invaders content and to protect TAITO’s intellectual properties.
