CCC Says: "Flappy Bird is a rip-off. Yes you can argue the merits of its success. You can even point to the ridiculous amount of cash it was raking in during the height of its popularity. That doesn’t change the simple fact that this app is, unequivocally, a rip-off in every way, shape and form. While I realize there’s nothing new under the sun (as you see recycling of themes from films, literature and music all the time), Flappy Bird is mired by more than just accusations of plagiarism (or whatever you’d call the video game equivalent)."
