EA Wants Judge to Dismiss Copyright Claim by Zynga

Electronic Arts Inc., the second- biggest U.S. video-game publisher, asked a federal judge to dismiss a claim by Zynga Inc. that its copyright infringement lawsuit violates a year-old agreement between the companies. Electronic Arts filed suit in San Francisco in August, claiming Zynga’s “The Ville” infringes copyrights for “The Sims Social,” an Electronic Arts game that runs on Facebook Inc.’s social network.
