In 1979, Atari made Asteroids... But, in 1981, Amusement World produced Meteors - a clone of Asteroids. This lead to Amusement World getting sued. When the case went to court, the judge sided with Amusement world. This landmark case ruled that you cannot copyright a genre of game. Stephen Holniker, CEO of Amusement World passed away in October, 2012. After 30 years, Eric Holniker, his son uncovered the actual Meteors arcade.
