They once sued Epic for UE3 and I suppose this is the result.

I don't understand, did Epic games create unreal engine 3, and they stole it, or what?

Epic creates the Unreal engine 3.
Licensed it to SK
SK then sues epic because "they didn't give them all the tools (something along those lines)
Epic wins lawsuit

Then this happens.

Nice to see tit for tat frivolous lawsuits are still wasting peoples time. Law firms will replace banks with the amount of corporations suing each other.

Oh yeah, you know the judge was bored going from that verdict. Talk about scorched earth.....

When were you born? They've been creating one of the best engines every gen since 1990's.

Besides SK I never heard of a developing team sucking that much at using a game engine to the point of suing a game engine company. Fully documented UDK says hi.

What I don't get, is how they can be ordered to destroy all software using the engine, they PAID for the license for the engine right? That's like Hershey suing their cocoa provider, losing the case, than being ordered to destroy all their chocolate, it doesn't make sense.

I need to find a copy of Too Human quick. Enjoyed the game despite the flaws
Rainbow Dash is best pony. The only arguement I will accept is for Twilight Sparkle.
