    I wouldn't say the majority of cases. Just the majority of cases we actually hear about. We hear more about patent infringement cases than we do trademark infringement.

    Activision has been using the vehicle model in CoD for 14 years. That time frame may be enough to cost AM General the case in court, since they've already failed to defend their "trademark" for that 14 years. There is a limit as to how long a company has to bring suit for trademark infringement. AM General also has to prove that Activision's use of the model damaged their reputation or sales, which will be hard to do seeing as how the vehicle isn't sold to the general public and the military doesn't care about video games when choosing vehicles.

    the world has gone sue crazy - for gain in anyway they can, so sad. The lawyers, solicitors in all aspects of suing are there to rub their greedy hands together :cool:
