In October 1984, Fred L. Worth, author of /The Trivia Encyclopedia <>/, /Super Trivia/, and /Super Trivia II/, filed a $300 million lawsuit against the distributors of /Trivial Pursuit/. He claimed that more than a quarter of the questions in the game's Genus Edition had been taken from his books, even to the point of reproducing typographical errors and deliberately placed misinformation <>. One of the questions in /Trivial Pursuit/ was "What was Columbo <>'s
first name?" with the answer "Philip". That information had been fabricated to catch <> anyone who might try to violate his copyright <>.^[5]

Worth's arguments were rejected by the courts.
