BLIZZARD AND VALVE CONTINUE TO PURSUE LEGAL CLAIMS AGAINST LILITH GAMES AND LONGTU
November 18th, 2015 -- Valve Corporation and Blizzard Entertainment continue to pursue claims for ongoing copyright and trademark infringement and unfair competition against Lilith Games and Longtu Games in Beijing Court of Haidian District. The original lawsuit was brought by Valve in April of this year and Blizzard joined as a third party claimant on June 9, 2015. The litigation is currently progressing according to Chinese court practice.
The complaint seeks an injunction and damages related to Dota Legend, a mobile game developed by Lilith and distributed by Longtu, for copyright and trademark infringement of and unfair competition against Valve's Dota 2 and Blizzard’s Warcraft games.
Apple recently removed the Dota Legend game from its App Store. The removal was the result of a request by Valve and Blizzard to take down the game based on their prior rights and the legal claims the companies are pursuing. Contrary to recent reports, the takedown of Dota Legend did not relate to technical issues, but in fact followed Valve and Blizzard’s request for the game’s removal.
Valve and Blizzard will continue to press ahead with their claims in order to protect their creative works. The two companies are confident that the Chinese legal system will protect their rights and lay out a path that will ensure a healthy environment for the gaming industry in China at large going forward. Valve and Blizzard look forward to working with their Chinese partners in this collaborative effort to advance the positive growth and development of the Chinese gaming industry to the benefit of the industry and all Chinese players.
