ZeniMax says John Carmack took id Software’s intellectual property to Oculus VR

ZeniMax recently filed a legal notice against John Carmack, id Software founder, accusing him of taking “ZeniMax’s intellectual property with him to Oculus”.

The The Wall Street Journal reported on the suit, saying id Software claims Carmack’s taken software directly to his new posting at Oculus VR.

Carmack took to Twitter to address the suit:

ZeniMax has sent a formal legal notice asking for a licensing agreement between ZeniMax and Oculus VR as a result.

Oculus VR told the Wall Street Journal that the situation was “unfortunate, but when there’s this type of transaction, people come out of the woodwork with ridiculous and absurd claims.”

“We intend to vigorously defend Oculus and its investors to the fullest extent,” Oculus VR continued.
