David V Goliath: Zynga v. Night Owl

And so, another week, and another mammoth developer tries throwing their weight around. This time it’s Zynga, the publishers of highly popular Facebook games such as Castleville, Cityville, Farmville and Mafia Wars 2. They have said that Night Owl Games (publishers of Dungeon Overlord) have breached copyright laws by using the term “Ville” in their upcoming add-on component, Dungeonville (EA, Facebook, FarmVille, Industry, PC, Zynga)

...I'm starting to hate Zynga. They shamelessly ripped off Tiny Tower, now they're coming at somebody for using the term "Ville"? For shame.

It's getting ridiculous what companies can claim as their own nowadays. Ville? Seriously, they just keep pushing it.
