GT Interactive has offered Hasbro a settlement in their intellectual property dispute. Under the terms of the agreement, GT acknowledges Hasbro's rights to classic games titles it acquired in its purchase of Atari in 1998 and will cease publication of its own titles based on those properties. GT will also make an undisclosed cash payment to Hasbro. "When you look at our games and their games side by side, there's no doubt that the defendants have copied the creative expression of the Atari games, not just abstract ideas," said Hasbro's Tom Dusenberry. Similar intellectual property complaints against Xtreme Games and eGames have not been settled.
