I saw the post about this game last week and went to the site. Saw Star Trek and Star Wars stuff on there. I can't see how this is even a legitimate company.

Also the "Babylon 5" Starfury was in the materials.

People have been mentioning the copyright infringements in every article Massively has posted on this game.

I support anyone going after the P.O.S Mad-dash-for-cash jerks that are ruining MMOs in general.

Heh, they may get the revenue they need to finish the other two games and shift some resources back to EVE. (Snicker)

Who didn't see this coming down 5th street in a cab? I'm just surprised it took this long.

PS: I'm pretty sure the blatant copyright infringement was planned to take attention away from how horrible the game itself is, anyway. All part of the plan. More people will probably sign up to see all the ripped off ship designs before it gets changed/closed down.

I bet that's actually the plan. Remember Evony? They stole art from comics, and Civ, and all sorts of other things for their cheesy game. They even had ads that were comprised entirely of cleavage shots.

End the end, iirc, they got sued and immediately closed their doors. I wonder how much money they got away with?

Not before they sued that Brit blogger for defamation in an Austrialian court. Can't remember his name now. I just remembered being outraged that it was apparently possible to do such a thing.

I'm wondering who at Yoogames thought they could actually get away with this?

Newsflash: the interwebs are real. People notice things.

"What will become of this, no one knows... oh, who are we kidding? This is lawsuit city."

YooGames is under a parent company, Dragonsmeet.

Dragonsmeet is based in Shanghai, Peoples' Republic of China.

So we all know exactly what will become of this: absolutely nothing.

Lawsuit city? LOL. If Iceland invades and annexes China, maybe.

@TheClaw

China is starting to take copyright laws seriously, because it is impacting their businesses in the west. Now that doesn't mean anything is going to happen here, but maybe, if we're lucky.

Additionally, will Massively comment on the allegations that they have been paid to promote this copyright-violating game? They have been raised in the comments of every previous article on Planet War, and we are still waiting for a response.

Are these articles cash for comment? And if not, why is Massively dedicating so much space to promoting this scam?
