Mek Mi Rich Responds to Allegations of Infringement of Intellectual Property

MMR Belize Limited which is the parent company of the television game show, Mek Mi Rich, is denying allegations of infringement upon intellectual property in a claim brought by Curtis Swasey of Corozal Town. According to MMR, Swasey filed a claim against Belize Telemedia Limited back in November 2014, listing the company as a co-defendant, for breach of confidence.  A hearing was held on February ninth, 2015, and the Supreme Court granted MMR’s application to strike out the claim against the company, additionally ordering Swasey to pay one thousand dollars in legal fees to the company. MMR also says that at no time during the development process of the game was MMR aware that B.T.L. was in contact with Swasey; and that in any event, MMR was using technology created by Famcom Inc. of California.
