After years of avoiding the public eye, Jeff Bezos is being pushed onto a high-profile stage: Congress. Along with three other tech CEOs -- Apple's Tim Cook, Alphabet's Sundar Pichai and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg -- Bezos is reluctantly appearing on Wednesday before a House of Representatives subcommittee that's investigating the power of big tech companies.

The original lawsuit, filed by ZeniMax last month , accused Oculus of "misappropriation of trade secrets, copyright infringement, breach of contract, unfair competition, unjust enrichment, trademark infringement, and false designation" for its use of code and technology developed by ZeniMax. But the 32-page filing denies that ZeniMax technology was key to the development of the Rift or the SDK behind it and alleges that the legal claims are suspiciously timed to take advantage of Oculus' newfound Facebook largesse.
