Zombie resemblance?

Zombie infringement*

Striking resemblance? I think not. So any zombie with it's arms out to the side is infringement?

Jesus Christ just read the fucking article before mouthing off. The asset was taken directly from killing floor and sold on unity by some unscrupulous douche. Tripwire alerted 7 days dev that it was a stolen asset and did not belong to the artist they bought it off. Whatever story of "killing floor dev thinks a zombie in one game looks a bit like a zombie in their game and is now suing" is little more than the product of what I have to assume is stupidity and pure imagination. 7days have already acknowledged that the asset is in fact stolen - the problem is they're inundated with emails and haven't managed to reply so now things have moved forward.

I did read however the photos don't look identical. The arms look much larger in 7 Days

Oh gawd, these people are ridiculous an it's pretty pathetic that element couldd just admit that he only looked at the pictures. Had he read the full article there would be no discussion. The asset/model was stolen and sold to this dev, end of discussion. It literally IS their work, not some slight similarity.
