Zynga sues “Bang With Friends” for trademark infringement

1 10 2013
Since the beginning of 2013, Facebook users have been able to use the “Bang With Friends” app to choose which one of their friends they’d like to do the horizontal tango with. But here’s the tricky part: the app won’t show the object of your affection that you’ve selected them until they select you back. (Sneaky!)But there’s just one problem: Bang With Friends sounds a lot like another, more established online app: “Words with Friends,” or “Chess with Friends,” or a bunch of the other “…with Friends” apps made by Zynga. So it’s no surprise that the social gaming company has now filed a federal lawsuit against Bang With Friends, charging the younger upstart with trademark infringement, among other allegations.
