  1. NetEase seems to have plan to sue the clones of Rules of Survival and Knives Out .. while being sued by PUBG Corp.

    Last week, PUBG Corp - a subsidiary of publisher Bluehole filed a lawsuit against NetEase for having infringed PUBG's copyright through two games, Rules of Survival and Knives Out. PUBG Corp alleges that NetEase not only has copied many of PUBG's Gameplay features, but also has used PUBG's image to attract players. The case is submitted to California Courts and still pending.


    However, recently Chinese developer NetEase has had an unexpected notice. While being sued for imitating of PUBG, NetEase says that it would also sue any Studio that uses the "creative features" found in Rules of Survival and Knives Out. But how interesting it is this Chinese developer does not mention Bluehole, PUBG Corp or PUBG in its announcement.


    In this announcement, NetEase claimed that its two games are welcomed by a large number of gamers and has "new ideas and features." NetEase also said that after the success of two games, many studios began to "copy" NetEase’s ideas to use for their products. NetEase declared that it would use all legal actions to protect the "original idea" of Rules of Survival and Knives Out.
