August 2014

  • Capcom is suing Koei-Tecmo for copyright infringement. The lawsuit was filed on August 26. The Capcom statement claims that the Samurai Warriors series has heavily plagiarized characters, ideas, and scenarios from the Sengoku BASARA series; they also claim to have patented the Warring States concept and system before Omega Force developed it in 2002. The legal representative states that the "act of plagiarism has contributed greatly to [Koei-Tecmo]'s profits". Capcom issued an approximate 9 million yen compensation fee for intellectual property damage. Koei-Tecmo has so far rejected the notions, issuing a comment of their innocence and their drive to defend themselves legally to the press.
    • Capcom's legal issue has been clarified from initial reports. The particular patent in question occurred earlier in 1994 and 1996 for an unnamed series concept. It would have allegedly used a gimmick similar to the Import option found in several Koei games, first used in Dynasty Warriors 3: Xtreme Legends. According to Patent Law Article 66, the original patent will expire twenty years after it is first issued (December 9, 2014 for Capcom). The lawsuit of patent infringement is directed to any title which had been relying on Import until the patent's expiration date (49 titles according to initial reports). A poignant flaw in Capcom's allegation mentioned by the Japanese media is that a similar concept was already conceived by Koei's preexisting Power Up Kit expansions for Koei's historical simulation games and Winning Post series. Konami had also preceded Capcom's claims. Koei continues to insist on its do-or-die resistance to the lawsuit.
