Citation Edit

Team Play, Inc. v. Boyer, 391 F.Supp.2d 695 (N.D. Ill. 2005) (full-text).

Factual Background Edit

The Defendant alleged that he was hired by one of the Plaintiffs to develop a game titled "Sharpshooter." He alleged that the Plaintiffs later developed another game called "Police Trainer 2" that infringed on his copyright in "Sharpshooter." The Plaintiffs sued for a declaratory judgment that they did not violate the Defendant's copyright.

Trial Court Proceedings Edit

The court held that the videogame “Police Trainer 2” does not infringe the copyrights to the videogames “Police Trainer” or “Sharpshooter,” because features of the games that were similar embodied nothing more than ideas or scenes a faire, and thus were not copyrightable.
