Oculus denies John Carmack stole VR tech from his former employer

As it appeared recently, the Oculus VR hasn’t been dealing so well with the recent incident involving their Chief Technology Officer John Carmack . The employee bears the accusation of stealing intellectual property for use in his new gig and following this uproar, the nascent Facebook subsidiary merely stated that "It's unfortunate, but when there's this type of transaction, people come out of the woodwork with ridiculous and absurd claims. We intend to vigorously defend Oculus and its investors to the fullest extent."

However this statement made earlier has now been expanded as of today and it kind of pushes back on the claims made by Zenimax. The Oculus statement goes like "We are disappointed, but not surprised by Zenimax's actions and we will prove that all of its claims are false" and this statement was followed by a list of points which were there to refute the accusations made by Zenimax. One point stated that "There is not a line of Zenimax code or any of its technology in any Oculus products" while the second highlight from the list of points states that "Zenimax did not pursue claims against Oculus for IP or technology, Zenimax has never contributed any IP or technology to Oculus, and only after the Facebook deal was announced has Zenimax now made these claims through its lawyers."

As far as the history of Zenimax working with Palmer Luckey on VR is concerned, the Oculus statements have also managed to shed some light on what has been happening in this area for the past couple of years and it was stated that "A key reason that John permanently left Zenimax in August of 2013 was that Zenimax prevented John from working on VR, and stopped investing in VR games across the company."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
