Default Oculus ordered to pay up on ZeniMax tech

A US jury in Texas ordered Oculus, and other defendants to pay a combined $500 million to ZeniMax Media, a video game publisher that claims Oculus stole its technology.

The jury thought that in 2014, Oculus used ZeniMax’s computer code to launch the Rift virtual-reality headset. ZeniMax alleges that video game designer John Carmack developed core parts of the Rift’s technology while working at a ZeniMax subsidiary. Oculus hired Carmack in 2013.

ZeniMax Chief Executive Robert Altman hailed the verdict and said in a statement the company was considering seeking an order blocking Oculus and Facebook from using its code. It is unclear what impact that would have on the Rift’s market availability.
