The most loved game right now PUBG is nailing down the market as each day passes. That being the reason, there are multiple companies that have their eyes set on replicating the game. One apparently has, PUBG Corp has recently filed a lawsuit against NetEase for copyright infringement regarding Rules Of Survival.
NetEase is a Chinese PC and mobile developer who published the all famous Rules Of Survival mobile game. The PUBG Corp did say that they might take legal action against them as they have copied the game.
Seems to be that NetEase was not too serious about the threat and now they just have to face the wrath of the legal conformity.
The lawsuit has been filed in the Northern District of California under US District Court under the rule of copyright infringement, trade dress infringement, and an unfair competition.
Based on the case, PUBG Corp. has accused two games, Rules of Survival and Knives Out to be rolled out for mobile before PUBG Mobile, in order to gain market share.
Now in order to gain the market share, the developers of Rules Of Survival, have copied some crucial element without the legal consent from PUBG Corp.
This is apparently what PUBG Corp had to say, the rebound by NetEase is still to be seen. So we can not be sure whether PUBG is on the right side or NetEase.
The complete copy of the lawsuit has been made available to you. So you can give that a try as well.
Be that as it may, these are not the only games that have been under the label of cloning. FortCraft that has been published by NetEase is considered to a clone of Fortune Mobile.
So, don’t know where these lawsuits are headed but let’s hope it all works out fine.
