Rajkotupdates.News : Pubg Developer Krafton Has Filed A Lawsuit Against Garena Free Fire is our today’s topic. Krafton, the PUBG developer, has launched a lawsuit against Garena, accusing them of replicating PUBG: Battlegrounds. That is not all. Krafton has filed a lawsuit against Apple and Google for distributing Garena’s games on their respective app marketplaces.
Google has also been accused of hosting YouTube videos of the gameplay of the two Garena games that Krafton is upset about, as well as “numerous posts containing a feature-length Chinese film that is nothing more than a blatantly infringing live-action dramatization of Battlegrounds.” Krafton is suing these firms for our Garena Free Fire and Free Fire Max games. Both games are free with in-app purchases on the App Store and the Play Store.

According to Krafton, Garena Free Fire and Garena Free Fire Max have extensively copied many aspects of PUBG: Battlegrounds, including the copyrighted unique game opening “airdrop” feature, gameplay and structure, locations, weapon combinations and selection, and overall color schemes, materials, and textures.
Garena allegedly collected millions from in-app sales, according to the PUBG creator. Apple and Google “similarly earned a substantial amount of revenue from their distribution of Free Fire.”
Krafton claims that on December 21, it requested that Garena “immediately stop its exploitation of Free Fire and Free Fire Max,” which they refused. Apple and Google were also requested to stop distributing the games, but both remain in the app stores.
Krafton has also requested that YouTube remove recordings of Free Fire and Free Fire Max gameplay “that include elements that blatantly infringe Battlegrounds and, separately, the infringing feature-length film,” something YouTube has yet to do.
Krafton said that in 2017, Garena sold a game in Singapore that “copied” PUBG: Battlegrounds. According to the complaint, no license agreement was made while the allegations related to this game were addressed.
Apple and Google have not yet responded to Krafton’s lawsuit, while Jason Golz, a spokeswoman for Garena’s parent company, Sea, has told The Verge that Krafton’s claims are “groundless.” Hope you enjoy reading our article Rajkotupdates.News : Pubg Developer Krafton Has Filed A Lawsuit Against Garena Free Fire.
