Zynga has officially responded to EA's recent lawsuit
over its claims of a "clear violation" of copyright regarding The Ville
. General Counsel for Zynga Reggie Davis issued the following statement:
"Today we responded to EA's claims which we believe have no merit. We also filed a counterclaim which addresses actions by EA we believe to be anticompetitive and unlawful business practices, including legal threats and demands for no-hire agreements. We look forward to getting back to focusing all our efforts on delighting our players."
Reached for comment, EA spokesman John Reseburg told Joystiq, "This is a predictable subterfuge aimed at diverting attention from Zynga's persistent plagiarism of other artists and studios. Zynga would be better served trying to hold onto the shrinking number of employees they've got, rather than suing to acquire more."Continue reading Zynga files counterclaim against EA, EA calls it 'predictable subterfuge'
