Worlds Inc


Founded in 1994, Worlds Inc. invented and patented technology to solve problems associated with large-scale 3D multi-user environments, known as virtual worlds.

Worlds secured an early priority date by filing a provisional application with the USPTO in Nov, 1995. Within a year, Worlds filed a non-provisional patent application, claiming the priority date of their 1995 provisional application.

Worlds has pursued additional claims associated with their invention through a series of continuing patent applications, amassing a substantial patent portfolio:

Their patent portfolio remains in force until Nov, 2016 (20 years from the filing date of their first non-provisional patent application).

Worlds v. Activision


On Mar 30, 2012, Worlds filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Activision. Worlds’ lawsuit seeks monetary damages as well as a permanent injunction barring the manufacture and sale of infringing devices. Additionally, the complaint accuses Activision of willfully infringing and seeks an award of exemplary damages, attorneys' fees, and related court costs.


Susman Godfrey is representing Worlds, without fee, unless the lawsuit is successful or is favorably settled out of court. Susman Godfrey is considered the top litigation boutique in the country. Max Tribble, lead counsel of Susman Godfrey, is the lead counsel for Worlds. Tribble has an extensive track record of patent infringement lawsuit wins and settlements for plaintiffs in lawsuits against large corporations, including:

Paltalk v. Microsoft

Mass Engineered Design v. Ergotron & Dell, et al

Sky Technologies v. Oracle

Sky Technologies v. IBM

Worlds (WDDD) as well owns  9.3%  of Marimed (Nasdaq; MRMD) as of the  12/31/16 financial statement

December 6th 2016

Worlds Inc. (OTC QB:WDDD) is a leading intellectual property developer and licensee of patents related to 3D online virtual worlds. The Company has a portfolio of 9 US patents (6,219,045; 7,181,690; 7,493,558; 7,945,856; 8,082,501; 8,145,998; 8,161,385 8,407,592& 8,640,028) for multi-server technology in 3D applications, notably Virtual Worlds. The earliest of these patents issued on an application filed November 12, 1996. A provisional patent application, serial number 60/020,296, was filed on November 13, 1995.

These patents are related to each other and disclose and claim systems and methods for enabling users to interact in a virtual space. Worlds Inc. filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Activision Blizzard, Inc., Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. and Activision Publishing, Inc. in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts on March 30, 2012.

Activision's World of Warcraft and Call of Duty video games have been identified in the complaint as infringing on Worlds' patents. Max L Tribble, lead counsel of Susman Godfrey L.L.P, will be lead counsel for Worlds in the suit.

The Markman hearing for the patent infringement suit by Worlds Inc. against Activision Blizzard, Inc., Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. and Activision Publishing, Inc. (Activision Blizzard et al) (Nasdaq: ATVI), was held October 3, 2014 to address various aspects of the infringement suit claims and how the words in the 11 disputed 'constructions' in the claims should be construed for jury consideration. On June 26, 2015 Judge Denise Casper of the United District Court for the District of Massachusetts ruled in favor of certain Worlds key definitions and interpretations governing the construction claims. Activision Blizzard the defendant in this action became “time-barred” to file an action to challenge the Patents using the only “other” venue that has the authority to disqualify the patents, The United States Patent Trial and Appeal Board.

December 6th 2016: 
Worlds current Federal Trial is on mutual consent hold pending the disposition of the validation or denial action of the PTAB. The Company's principle goal will be to continue to grow its IP portfolio, while protecting and monetizing it through patent infringement litigation. In addition, Worlds Inc. intends to be active in the creation and acquisition of related digital media technologies and patents that complement their current patent portfolio and that broaden the features, versatility and reach of the technology to allow for its utilization in the broadest possible way.

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/20/16 -- Worlds Inc. (OTCQB: WDDD) intends to file an appeal of recent Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) rulings to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit regarding Worlds' seminal technology that has been fundamental to the development of massively multiplayer online role-playing gaming (MMORPG) into a $20-billion dollar industry.

Appellate Case #17-1481 

Bungie, Inc. files a reply to the Unites States Court Of Appeals arguing that Worlds IPR case should be upheld from the previous PTAB (Patent Trial and Appeal Board) Order. The PTAB is an Executive Branch Agency empowered by Congress under the American Invents Act- Currently under scrutiny by the Supreme Court under
Oil States Energy Services LLC v. Greene’s Energy Group, LLC  Case 16-712 ). The filing  for Bungie is open as of 8/29/2017 included below:

**UPDATED** Worlds Reply Brief to Bungies Reply of the above 9/22/2017

***UPDATED** 10/23/2017  Worlds case is partially dependent on the Wi-Fi One En Banc Appellate decision due out anytime. Worlds alleges that Bungie is acting in concert (privity)with Activision Blizzard ( a time barred Plaintiff for IPR purposes). Today there is no precedent to allow the PTAB Director or Board to be challenged with Judicial Review from the Courts. Wi-Fi one asks the courts to reverse Achaides and allow "judicial review"

"Should this court overrule Achates Reference Publishing, Inc. v. Apple Inc., 803 F.3d 652 (Fed. Cir. 2015) and hold that judicial review is available for a patent owner to challenge the PTO’s determination that the petitioner satisfied the timeliness requirement of 35 U.S.C. § 315(b) governing the filing of petitions for inter partes review?"
