Thread: Who holds the copyrights of Pong?

  1. #1

    Default Who holds the copyrights of Pong?

    Hi there,

    i'd like to create a new game which uses some of the game mechanics of pong. Like having a stick which is being used to reflect a ball and play against another player. Sure there will be some differences but still in its core it might resemble pong more then i'd love it would do.

    Anyway, i wonder if i have to acquire a license to create such game without being afraid to get into any legal problems afterwards in case i'd like to sell it commercially. Also where/how i can acquire this license would be interessiere too.

    I hoped due the fact Atari published pong i will find some answers here.

    Thanks for any tipps

    My best regards

    HC
