Zynga, which accused South American social gaming company Vostu of stealing ideas from its top games like CityVille, has settled the copyright lawsuits in exchange for cash and changes to Vostu’s games.
Zynga filed suit against Vostu in the U.S. in June, and again in Brazil shortly after that. Here’s the joint statement from Vostu and Zynga:
Zynga and Vostu have settled the copyright lawsuits and counterclaims against each other in the United States and Brazil. As part of the settlement, Vostu made a monetary payment to Zynga and made some changes to four of its games. The parties are pleased to have settled their disputes and to now put these matters behind them.
