Gibson files Lawsuits Against......Everyone....

It seems anyone who is even vaguely associated with the Guitar Hero franchise is unsafe from Gibson's fierce lawyers; Gibson is filing lawsuits against Harmonix, Viacom, and EA for violating their patent for a device on which "a musician can simulate participation in a concert by playing a musical instrument and wearing a head-mounted 3D display that includes stereo speakers."

In addition, Gibson is also suing any major retailers selling Guitar Hero games, which includes Gamestop, Kmart, Target and Walmart. However, in the heat of all this legal action, Gibson has neglected to file a lawsuit against Activision, the developer of Guitar Hero III.

I have one question for Gibson however, why not sue konami? I mean...they made GuitarFreaks. Its not like GuitarFreaks has been out since the days of the PSX or anything, right?
