SAN FRANCISCO – A Turkish game developer is suing a New York corporation over allegations it copied the plaintiff's game.
GG Oyun Bilisim Yazilim v Pazarlama AS, doing business as Gram Games, filed a complaint on May 23 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against The Blu Market Inc., citing federal copyright infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it suffered damages as a result of its game, 1010!, being copied without its consent by the defendant for its game, Qubed. The plaintiff holds The Blu Market Inc. responsible because the defendant's Qubed is very similar to plaintiff's game, containing similar attributes as the original game, and distributed it to the public.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks permanent injunction against the defendant, all damages, interest and any other relief as this court deems just. It is represented by Jennifer L. Kelly and Liwen A. Mah of Fenwick & West LLP in San Francisco and Nicholas Plassaras of Fenwick & West LLP in Mountain View.
