Gårdagens kommentar från [[John Carmack]] (läs den här) om att [[id Software]] mer eller mindre tvingats att använda teknik ägd av [[Creative]] i [[Doom 3]] bemöts i dag av hårdvarujätten. I ett uttalande hos The Inquirer säger företagets Franco De Bonis bland annat följande:

"Like any company Creative owns a number of technology patents and like any company we need to ensure that our patents are protected. Simply allowing another company to knowingly use a patent you own weakens your position and future claims against infringement. We therefore had to find a legally acceptable way to allow id to use this technique without it being seen as an infringement. The goal was the same from id's perspective."
