The stakes are high — $2 billion dollars high — for the outcome of the ongoing ZeniMax vs. Facebook trial, in which the former is accusing the latter of stealing employee information and knowledge to make the Oculus Rift headset.
In a statement provided to Polygon this week, ZeniMax reiterated its position: “ZeniMax and id Software welcome the opportunity to present substantial evidence of the defendants’ misappropriation of our virtual reality intellectual property. That evidence includes the theft of trade secrets and highly confidential information, including computer code. ZeniMax will also present evidence of the defendants’ intentional destruction of evidence to cover up their wrongdoing.”
The trial is expected to go on for a few weeks.
