Atari pressures Apple, iOS game developer copycats

Gamesindustry.biz:

Atari has reportedly been applying legal pressure to developers which it believes are infringing on its intellectual property rights, despite the developers affected claiming that attempts had been made on their part to reach an agreement.

Black Powder Games, developer of one of the games Atari asked Apple to remove from the App Store, cites a “special relationship” between Atari and Apple as why Apple has been so quick to remove titles that Atari says violate its IP.

    Apple is quick to remove any title when someone cries IP even if the crier is wrong. It’s how they CYA themselves. No special relationship needed

    Not just Apple either. After ten years of the DMCA… companies shoot first and rarely ask questions later.
