    Even last year, Electronic Arts seriously offended by Zynga games because of The Ville, which, according to lawyers and staff units publisher EA Maxis, largely copies the original Facebook-game The Sims Social. And the claims were sufficiently compelling to start legal proceedings. In turn, the company Zynga filed a lawsuit accusing a competitor in the obstacle of hiring new employees. It seemed that it would be a great war, but in the end nothing happened. Companies dropped their lawsuits and removed claims against each other and assured the court that more on this issue is not going to apply, according to Electronista.

Recall that in the past, Zynga was able to lure a number of employees of EA, who supposedly had access to sensitive data on social gaming company. This became a stumbling block and the reason that the publisher was threatened by its own employees even litigation if they suddenly decide to go to Zynga.
