"The (Black) Lion" (chess defense):

"The Lion is an extraordinary chess opening. Playing with black you have an incredible strong weapon against all the white opening moves you can imagine. The Lion is an excellent response to 1.e4 or 1.d4, but the Lion is also the best answer for 1.c4 and 1.Nf3. Actually, it's more than just an opening. The Lion is also played in middlegame and endgame. With the Lion you get a whole new chess strategy and -philosophy."

"A multi-processor chess engine by primary author Giancarlo Delli Colli, initially written in Java and later ported to C++ based on the source code of Fruit.

Lion participated at the CCC 2005 in Bologna and the WCCC 2006 in Turin. At the WCCC, after five rounds were played and a protest was filed by a participant, Yngvi Björnsson and independently Jonathan Schaeffer inspected Lion's source code and found it a close derivative of Fabien Letouzey’s program Fruit, which would have been acceptable if this had been revealed, credit given, and permission received before entering.

The Lion authors did not deny, and provided their own interpretation of rules since they had included a file crediting the effort by Fabien Letouzey, albeit invisible for other people. Lion++ 1.5 was disqualified according to rule 2. ..."
