I'm pretty sure you've heard of Angry Birds by now. It's a game where you fling vengeful birds across a screen so you can murder other animals, who cooked up and ate the birds' young. It's a pretty sick game but people seem ... read

Okay games, great lawsuits
When I first heard that Electronic Arts was suing Zynga over The Ville, a rather blatant ripoff of EA’s The Sims Social, I was pretty excited to see the outcome.
