Niantic: Action against Global ++ for hacked game versions

Niantic has filed a lawsuit against Global ++, a group of developers creating pirate versions of popular AR games like Pokemon GO and Ingress. Hacked applications such as "PokeGo ++" and "Ingress ++" give users an unfair advantage while at the same time violating Niantic's intellectual property rights, the law says.

Global calls the "++" versions of the tweaked game, while Niantic calls them "hacked". "++" versions include features such as use GPS, automatic walking and sniping, which is inconsistent with the Terms of Service and the Code of Conduct for Players.

Niantic

The lawsuit calls 20 unknown defendants including members of Global ++ who could not be identified personally. «Among other things, the defendants' systems undermine the integrity of the gambling experience for legitimate players, reducing the enthusiasm for Niantic games and, in some cases, driving the players away from Niantic games. Therefore, the defendants' systems harm the reputation and goodwill of Niantic and interfere with the enterprise", Refers to the treatment.

Niantic seeks to force Global ++ to immediately stop distributing modified versions and stop any reverse engineering work of the official code distributed by Niantic.

Niantic will soon release the Harry Potter game. According to research, Global advertises Potter ++ openly in social media from at least 10 May.
