Konami has sued Harmonix, alleging that Rock Band infringes on several of its music game-related patents. Karaoke Revolution first came out in North America in 2003, several years before both Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Now Konami wants Harmonix to pay up.

Apparently Harmonix hasn’t received the official complaint yet, so it hasn’t said anything in its defense.

Fact: I still see kids playing Dance Dance Revolution in malls.
