ポケモンGOを運営するナイアンティックは、チーター御用達のPokemon go ++の運営であるGlobal++を訴えたという。
Pokemon go ++はiOSにおいて最も有名なチートアプリ。Nianticは、Global++のリーダーがRyan "ElliotRobot" Huntや、YouTuberのAlen "iOS n00b" Hundur、そして主要な開発者メンバー20人を訴えたとのこと。
"Pokémon Go," the mega-popular smartphone game from developer Niantic, has had to stay one step ahead of cheaters since its launch in 2016.
Some players have used a surprisingly sophisticated array of tools to circumvent the rules and do things like automatically walk in circles to hatch Pokémon eggs, spot exactly where rare monsters are hiding, and even spoof their GPS location so they can trick the game into thinking they're suddenly halfway around the world.
Now, Niantic is drawing a line in the sand, as it files a lawsuit against Global++ — what it describes as an "association of hackers" that allegedly makes and distributes "unauthorized derivative versions" of apps including "Pokémon Go" and "Ingress," another game made by Niantic. Those apps, called "PokeGo++" and "Ingress++," give users an unfair advantage, while simultaneously infringing on Niantic's intellectual property rights, Niantic says in the lawsuit.
