No Mans Sky Superformula Patent Discussion

Hello Games new title No Man's Sky is very close to launch. Why are No Man's Sky fans are worried about a patented Superformula? Because in 2003 Belgian plant geneticist named Johan Gielis published an equation that can describe a large number of natural forms, such as starfish, spiderwebs, snowflakes and even crystals. He called this equation the superformula. No Man's Sky uses this superformula as a reliable source for creation of the world in NMS.

Why are we still talking about this? No Man's Sky infringes on Gielis' patent, then there should be a compensation and distribution should be discontinued if there is no such compensation.

Will this threaten the launch of No Man's Sky?
