Shuffle Master was forced to cover its products when Macau customs officials went to the American company’s exhibition stand. However then, Shuffle Master obtained a court order showing it was permitted to showcase the products in question and so took off the covers again.
LT Game claims it has a Macau patent for this particular multi-game electronic casino product. Shuffle Master disputes LT Game’s patent and says it has already won several court cases in Macau to that effect.
In Macau, copyright infringement is considered a crime and offenders could be jailed.
