Facebook Preliminarily Wins Copyright Lawsuit over Third Party App–Miller v. Facebook

Miller v. Facebook, Inc., 3:10-cv-00264-WHA (N.D. Cal. March 31, 2010)

Miller developed a videogame called Boomshine. He is upset that Yeo made an allegedly infringing knockoff variation of the game, called ChainRxn, and distributed the knockoff as a Facebook app. Miller sued both Yeo and Facebook for copyright infringement. In January, I blogged on Facebook’s success invoking the venue clause in its user agreement to move the case to its home court.
