Geek Shack reported last week that Five Nights At Freddy’s game creator Scott Cawthon took legal action to force Apple to identify an app developer who posted a clone game in Apple’s App Store.
The developer, “Lazada Polodi” apparently copied the first Freddy’s game, charged $9.99 for it, and made quite a bit of money before it was pulled.
The article notes: “Whoever was in charge of the App Store’s review team must have been asleep when this was uploaded. Apple can choose to challenge the subpoena, though it seems unlikely. The fact that this app ever got up has already embarrassed the company enough.”
These types of clones appear regularly in all of the app stores. IP Lasso continuously monitors 18 platforms covering over 10 million listings and is constantly looking out for fraudulent activities on behalf of our clients. That’s why more of the world’s top game publishers use IP Lasso than anyone else to help secure their mobile assets.
