Don’t Sue Me, Bro… Taser Drops Suit Against Second Life

TASER International has – at least for now – dropped a trademark infringement suit against Linden Lab, which operates Second Life.

As GamePolitics reported in April, the maker of the controversial stun guns, filed suit after it discovered virtual TASER replica items being sold in Second Life as gear for SL avatars (see pic at left).TASER also alleged that its brand would be damaged via association with virtual sex and virtual drug use occuring within Second Life.

Virtual World News reports:

Taser filed a Notice of Voluntary Case Dismissal… and adds that because Linden never filed an answer to the original complaint, the dismissal is "without prejudice" — meaning Taser could choose to refile at a later date.
