PUBG Corporation has filed suit against NetEase for copyright and trademark violations

The battle royale genre has been getting a lot of attention with the recent mobile releases of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite. And with that popularity has come a slew of copycats and clones trying to beat their inspiration to the punch. So, of course, it was only a matter of time before lawsuits started flying, and apparently, Bluehole Studio has had enough as they have filed a suit against NetEase for copyright and trademark violations.
The suit was filed in Northern California's US District Court by PUBG Corp, "a wholly owned subsidiary of Korean game publisher Bluehole," and the 155-page complaint lists a lengthy summary of elements that explain why NetEase's mobile-only battle royale games Rules of Survival and Knives Out supposedly infringed on their property. You can read through the suit here for further details.
In China Meanwhile the title is said to have generated $12 million in revenue on the iOS App Store. The report couldn’t say for sure how much was made through third-party Android stores but believes it to be in the region $2 million, with 83 per cent of it coming from Japan.
In total, that means the game generated an impressive $24 million in February.

Japan is a much-coveted market for mobile games developers, with the country’s average revenue per paying user said to be the highest in the world at $89.88.
NetEase’s build-up of a popular following before the introduction of monetisation within its battle royale titles could now be showing signs of paying off.
The Chinese publisher originally released Knives Out in beta in November of last year before pushing it live in December. The game was quick to achieve success and surpassed 100 million downloadswithin its first month alone.

The suit individually describes characteristics of the game as "a copyrightable audio-visual work, individually and/or in combination with other elements of Battlegrounds," and it includes screenshots of the competing game to make a case of infringement. Remarkably, PUBG Corp lists what it believes are 25 copyrightable characteristics about the game. Some of those are far more specific to PUBG (a constantly shrinking circle that players must rush towards to stay alive; a group of 100 players all jumping from an airplane at a match's outset) than others (a pre-match lobby in which players can run around and shoot guns, damage models based on which body parts are shot, the use of a specific suite of popular military weapons).
