God Of War Tears Head Off Copycat Claims

In 2008, Jonathan Bissoon-Dath and Jennifer Barrette-Herzog sued Sony and God of War creator David Jaffe for copyright infringement over the original PS2 game. That case has now been dismissed.

While official notice of the motion has yet to be published on public court records, one of the accused - game designer David Jaffe - has posted the front page of the decision on his personal site, which reveals that the case was dismissed on March 5.

Bissoon-Dath and Barrette-Herzog claimed that God of War shared a number of "suspicious" coincidences with The Adventures of Own: Owen's Olympic Adventure and screenplay Olympiad. Guess the legal system proved otherwise.
