When the Nerd talks about the ColecoVision's expansion module that allowed Atari 2600 games to be played, he remarked how that would never happen today and there would be countless lawsuits. There actually was a lawsuit over Coleco's expansion module. Atari took them to court and Coleco counter-sued for $500M. The result of the suits was that Coleco ended up paying royalties to Atari over the expansion module. In a strange outcome, Atari and Coleco actually agreed to release certain games only for the other company's system.
