Happy Thanksgiving lawsuit.

WPS must really think that RCD made some big $$$, otherwise what can the damages possibly be?

We have one really upsetting inventor; it is definitely not for the money. I saw one blackjack-variant game, one table, in CA using 22 push feature. SWITCH was informed, but I think he let go of it just because it's not a threat.

I asked Roger Snow once about SHFL suing independent table game inventors over patent infringements. As I recall, he said that it wasn't worth considering until the game had a non-trivial number of placements and some longevity.

Interesting. But wouldn't that later be considered "failure to protect the patent"?

I mean, I would think that it's one thing to be unaware of a potential infringement, but entirely different thing to be aware and do nothing about it.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

I know nothing about patents but I thought I have heard before that you have to defend your patent if you find someone is infringing on it. If you dont defend it then that is like giving permission to use it.

Seemingly he filed for willful infringement, meaning he's going for punative damages. I couldn't see much else on my phone...

No AP is possible. Doubt it will attract anyone's attention.

What would happen if some random casino dealt RCD or WPS from an eight-deck shoe?

This type of game belongs to "Arcade". Freaking Pokemon and pinballs instead of horses. Ahigh should jump from joy, isn't it what he dreamed about?

I believe a casino did this with RCD back in 2013 (post the game coming in 2nd at Raving TG Conf in late 2012). I had heard that they had some AP losses...it didn't last long on their floor.
