Zynga are notorious for not copying but stealing, unfortunately they have gotten away with it many times purely because they picked on the smaller companies that just couldn't afford the court time or lawyer time.

I cannot think of a title they have released where there hasn't been controversy as to where they "got their ideas or even game content" from.

I honestly cannot see Zynga standing up for long, especially with their current performance of being hit by lawsuit after lawsuit...the fact the first one being "Insider Trading" is already a TKO for them

Give them a year and they won't be around...hell especially when they are pissing off companies like EA...what's next CoDville just to piss off Kotick?

As much as I dislike EA, I'm glad they're putting the boot down on Zynga. I'm certain that every one of their games is a ripoff of some other game that never had a chance to grow.

bout time they got tea-bagged. It's ridiculous how they've gotten away with it until now, I say great job EA.

I hope they beat them so the inevitable chain of other companies sueing them happens.

This is where Zynga will fall. They chose the wrong comapny to steal from, they should have stuck to the small devs who could not afford a legal battle.. Psycho Monkey, the creators of Mob Wars, sued Zynga and The suit was settled out of court for $7–9 million.. Shows they have not learn from that
