Those of you who follow game news, especially regarding competition in the MOBA market, will likely be familiar with Riot Games’ efforts to bring Moonton – the developer of Mobile Legends to justice. For the umpteenth time, Riot Games is trying to prove that Mobile Legends has ended up plagiarizing various mechanical and aesthetic aspects of League of Legends, both from the mobile and PC versions. Brought to the United States court, the ultimate goal is to make Mobile Legends withdrawn from circulation. However, the United States court actually sided with Moonton and Mobile Legends.
Courts in the United States decided to cancel / dissolve Riot Games (League of Legends) lawsuits against Moonton (Mobile Legends). The reason? They feel that there is a more appropriate court to handle this matter, namely a direct court in China. This is considered a fairer court considering that Riot Games is also 100% owned by Tencent, a Chinese company as well. After all, Tencent has also gone to court in China against Moonton for the same case. Riot Games is certainly not satisfied with this decision.
The US court said that the Riot Games (LOL) lawsuit against Moonton (Mobile Legends) was more appropriate in China.
Riot itself is considering the options they can take after this decision, especially for the United States. Will these lawsuits continue? Let’s just wait.
