EA is standing up for the industry against Zynga in its lawsuit over cloning allegations, the publishing giant’s COO has claimed.
Speaking to Eurogamer, Peter Moore said that there had been a number of examples in the past where Zynga had release copycat titles, but there had never been a company with the resources to take on the social games giant in court.

He added that he felt affronted and upset over Zynga’s recent release, The Ville, and said he’d finally seen enough of studios copying existing ideas.
"When we looked at The Ville we felt somewhat affronted by what we saw as copyright infringement,” said Moore.
“We also feel from an industry perspective that a number of these things have happened before related to Zynga, but there's never been a company that has the wherewithal and the resources to take it to the next level. We do.
