Battle vs. Chess is a computer game version of chess developed by Targem Games and Zuxxez Entertainment and published by TopWare Interactive. It was released on May 17, 2011 for PC (Windows and Mac), PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo DS, Xbox 360 and Wii in Europe. The U.S. version of the game could not be released due to an injunction by Interplay Entertainment for trademark infringement due to its similarity to Interplay title Battle Chess. The case went to trial by jury in the summer of 2012.[1][2] The District Court of California came into session and given that after two years of litigation, TopWare Interactive discharged their lawyer, resulting in Interplay winning the case by default.[3] The settlement was agreed upon on November 15, 2012. Terms of the settlement were $200,000 plus interest.[4]
