Court dismisses Bungie copyright infringement claim against AimJunkies

U.S. District Court Judge says that case failed to prove the cheat seller infringed upon publisher's copyrights and trademarks

Earlier this week a Seattle federal court ruled to dismiss Bungie's claim against cheat seller AimJunkies.

As reported by TorrentFreak, the case by the Destiny 2 maker alleged that the outfit's hacks were copyright and trademark infringements of its work.

U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Zilly said that Bungie's complaint failed to show that AimJunkies' cheats were copies of its work.

"Notably, Bungie has not pleaded any facts explaining how the cheat software constitutes an unauthorized copy of any of the copyrighted works identified in the complaint.

"Bungie's complaint must contain more than a 'formulaic recitation of the elements of a cause of action," said Judge Zilly.

Should Bungie present more evidence of copyright infringement, it can still refile these claims.
