Author suing Ubisoft over Assassin’s Creed
 

Author John L. Beiswenger is suing Ubisoft over alleged similarities between his 2003 novel Link and the Assassins Creed series. Mr¬†Beiswenger ‘s novel is set five years before the first Assassins Creed game and contains a “Bio-synthesizer”, which allows people access and re-live memories of their ancestors. Other similarities include the Forbidden Fruit, God, the Garden of Eden, the main man himself JC and all the other spiritual overtones. He alleges that Ubisoft have:

have directly copied, and directly and contributorily infringed on the whole of Plaintiff’s copyrighted work“.

I want this many Benjamin's

Mr Beiswenger is looking for a minimum of $1.05 million and upwards of $5.25 million in damages covering everything to do with Assassins Creed, so that’s games, guidebooks, comic books and trailers. Which in a tie in has brought in our friends over at Gametrailers.com, they too are being sued for showing this trailer

The case is currently before a Judge to see if it has any merit, but lets hope it doesn’t because the suit is also asking that production on¬† Assassins Creed 3 be halted! Maybe¬†Mr Beiswenger is actually a Templar and is trying to hide the truth from us all… I think ‘someone’ should hire an assassin – eh!
