OG International sues Ubisoft over copyright claims

"We are disappointed that Ubisoft has made unjustified accusations about our game and forced us to file a complaint."

O-Games, a subsidiary of OG International, has filed a lawsuit against Ubisoft over the unreleased console game Get Up And Dance.

The publisher is seeking a declaratory judgement against Ubisoft to say that Get Up And Dance does not infringe copyright or trade dress rights relating to Ubisoft's Just Dance franchise.

"Get Up And Dance is a creative, innovative and fun dance and fitness game," said Jim Scott, CEO of OG International Ltd.

"We have a great product with strong unique features like Group Mode, which allows dancers to dance and score together in their own dance group. We are disappointed that Ubisoft has made unjustified accusations about our game and forced us to file a complaint."

The complaint was filed October 7 in the Northern District of California.

Get Up And Dance is due to be released November 4 in the UK and November 8 in the US.
