Hello Kitty Guitars rock you like a pink hurricaneI’m speechless. The demon-spawn known as Hello Kitty has invaded rock. Her royal pinkness has her own deal with Fender. That means that world domination is nearly here. I think there may be one or two products left that have escaped her image.

Hello Kitty will be appearing on Stratocasters, music bags, picks, guitar straps, and the like which may be wielded by the likes of Prince or Hannah Montana. I bet that Metallica dude gets one and won’t admit it.

Activision and Guitar Hero targeted in patent dispute

Posted in patents by Darrin Olson on March 12th, 2008

Acitivision’s Guitar Hero accused of patent infringement by Gibson guitars.Gibson Guitar Corp. is accusing Activision of violating one of their patents with the popular Guitar Hero series of video games. The patent in question is owned by Gibson since 1999 and involves a system that would let a musician “virtually” participate in a pre-recorded concert while wearing a head-mounted 3D display with speakers. The music played on the instrument would then be recorded on a separate track and available for playback with the rest of the tracks to simulate playing in a concert.

Activision’s Guitar Hero does have a similar premise, however it’s played on a “pretend” plastic guitar and is a game where the player tries to mimic notes in concert represented on the monitor by graphical musicians in a concert. Activision is disputing the claim that they infringe upon Gibson’s patent and is asking the federal court to provide an official ruling.
