Copyrights Expert Witnesses & EA v. Zynga

Copyrights expert witnesses may testify on copyright infringement, copyright notice, and copyright limitations. In the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, Electronic Arts sued Zynga this week for copyright infringement stating that Zynga copied the game The Sims Social in creating The Ville. EA is the second largest U.S. video-game maker. Packaged video game sales have decreased as users move to games like The Sims Social and The Ville which are played on social sites.
