Krafton sues Garena, Apple and Google on Free Fire

KRAFTON, the PUBG rights owner, has filed a copyright lawsuit against Apple, Google and Garena.

The essence of the claims is that these companies have refused to remove from their platforms mobile shooters Free Fire and Free Fire Max. These games, in KRAFTON's opinion, infringe PUBG copyright, borrowing various elements from the game. KRAFTON also filed a lawsuit against YouTube for refusing to remove Free Fire videos.

The publisher addresses the court to restrict Apple, Google and Garena from selling and distributing copyright infringing games. In addition, the company seeks monetary compensation, which amount should be determined later.
