Rainbow Six 'copy' lands Apple and Google in copyright court

Ubisoft is suing Apple and Google over a Chinese mobile game it says is "a near carbon copy" of one of its most popular games, Rainbow Six: Siege.

"But rather than take any measures to stop or curtail the infringement Google and Apple instead decided that it would be more profitable to collect their revenue share from AF2 and continue their unlawful distribution," Ubisoft says in its court filing.

Ubisoft is seeking a jury trial over the alleged copyright infringement, in the Central District Court of California.
