Mobile Legends Gets Dragged to Court by Makers of League of Legends

Shanghai Moonton Technology, the company behind a series of Multiplayer Online Battle Arena or MOBA games is being brought to court by Riot Games, best known for their own MOBA game League of Legends. The lawsuit alleges that Moonton Technology has released a series of games based on League of Legends and other Riot Games' intellectual property.

Among the Moonton game titles called into question were Magic Rush: Heroes, Mobile Legends : 5x5 MOBA and Mobile Legends: Bang Bang. Here's a trailer of Mobile Legends so that you can judge for yourself if they've ripped anything of League of Legends.

The lawsuit details of the amount and extent of intellectual property copied by the Shanghai company, including maps, character designs, game logos, artwork and many more.

The lawsuit is the latest in a series of actions by Riot Games that has included petitioning Google Play and the App Store to remove Mobile Legends from their stores. Riot Games is also understandably upset that Moonton has shown no intention of changing the infringing elements and continues to market the game with inadequate tweaks.
