Legend of the video game industry John Carmack, ZeniMax filed the process. She demands $ 22.5 million for her alleged breach of contract terms. He also claims that he did not receive all the money for selling his own business.
A few weeks ago, ZeniMax Media won a spectacular victory over Oculus's Oculus Facebook, which is responsible for Océ Rift's VR goggles. The court found Oculus to use the technology Carmack had worked on, while still employed by ZeniMax Media, and ordered $ 500 million in compensation. ZeniMax, however, is not enough and wants to now ban the sale of Oculus.
The main culprit, John Carmack is a legend in the video game industry, whose id Software ZeniMax Media took over in 2009, paying $ 150 million. Carmack worked for the company on the VR goggle technology, and the results of his work were used during the Oculus work.
The court found him guilty of technology theft and blurring of the traces of his business (there is evidence that the programmer was searching Google for instructions to erase hard disk data), but Carmack nevertheless filed his gun and decided to bring the ZeniMax Media process. He demands from the company $ 22.5 million for breaking the terms of his contract work, as well as the rest of the money that ZeniMax had to pay for his company.
