Pokémon GO – Niantic complains about alleged copy, developer responds
Draconius GO apparently resembles Pokémon GO so much that the developers scent Niantic for a copyright infringement. At least tell the makers of Draconius.
Draconius GO makers Elyland explain in a statement that Pokémon GO developer Niantic is said to have contacted them. The studio does not seem to be happy that Draconius GO works almost exactly like Pokémon GO . The developers of the newer augmented reality game, however, defend themselves against the charge that they have infringed the copyright (via Pokemon GO Hub ):
“We received an unfounded complaint from Niantic in the Appstore – they think we violated their copyright, but we did not use their code or graphics when developing our product, it’s absolutely original.”
“When we developed this game, we consulted leading world-class lawyers and we are 100% sure that Niantic’s claim is unjustified.” Niantic’s reaction shows that they see us as a serious rival. that our product is better. ”
“In just one year, we’ve achieved more than Niantic with its billions of revenue, and we’re proud of our results – our graphics are unique and of better quality than any other AR games.”
The developers of Draconius GO hope their rivals will return to working on their games in the future. Meanwhile, her title already comes to about 100,000 downloads on Android alone.
Draconius GO already has a PvP mode compared to Pokémon GO . In addition, the game is well suited for fans in rural areas , because there is more to do there than in Pokémon GO.
