Electronic Arts sues Zynga over game design

The game design industry makes so much money that it must be a prime hunting ground for attack lawyers:

The video game publisher Electronic Arts sued Zynga on Friday, accusing the social gaming company of copying crucial elements of its Sims Social game for Zynga’s own title, The Ville. The lawsuit is the latest in a series of copycat accusations leveled against Zynga, a company that shrugged off similar litigation in the past as it grew into the dominant publisher of games on Facebook.
