[Source] Riot Games, the Tencent-owned studio behind League of Legends, has filed a lawsuit against Shanghai Moontoon Technology, developer of hit mobile game, Mobile Legends. The lawsuit was recently filed in Los Angeles, California, and claimed Moonton has “knowingly infringed on the copyright for League of Legends in the form of multiple mobile games.”
Riot Games also stated that after an initial complaint to Google Play, the first version “Mobile Legends: 5v5 MOBA” was taken down. However, Moonton later re-uploaded a second version, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, with minor edits but with the same core game. Another mobile game, Magic Rush: Heroes, was also named in the lawsuit. No court date has been set.
