While going through the Astrocade patents I stumbled upon a lawsuit that is Magnavox vs. Bally from 1975. It deals with the Odyssey patent. Or, at least, I think that it deals with that "console" from 1972. Does anyone know the details about this lawsuit? Here are some possibly helpful links: Magnavox Vs.

Did Bally get a license from Magnavox/Sanders to make the Bally Arcade home system? Adam (The was originally posted Nov 6, 2018 as BallyAlley Yahoo Group message #16138.)
