(Official Release, Playmore / SNKNeoGeo)
" On January 15, 2003, Plaintiffs, SNK NEOGEO USA CORP. and PLAYMORE CORPORATION, were successful in obtaining a preliminary injunction order from the Federal District Court that enjoined Worldwide Video Entertainment, Inc. (WWV), a San Diego based company, NeoGeo Freak (NGF) of Las Vegas, Nevada, and Arcade-Infinity, Inc. (Arcade), of Los Angeles, from among other things, selling allegedly counterfeit video game cartridges.
Worldwide and Arcade-Infinity stipulated to the preliminary injunction. Pursuant to the Court Orders against WWV, NGF and Arcade, all three entities are restrained from selling counterfeit products that infringe Plaintiffs' intellectual property rights, including such famous video games as "THE KING OF FIGHTERS 2002," "THE KING OF FIGHTERS 2001," "METAL SLUG 4," and "RAGE OF THE DRAGONS".
The Plaintiffs had previously raided all three of these businesses based on a Temporary Restraining Order issued on December 4, 2002. At that time, Plaintiffs seized numerous products, including posters, marquees, one slot PCBs, parts, wire harnesses, and video game cartridges, most of which have been inspected and positively identified as counterfeit products.
