Last Thursday we broke the story that social and mobile game developers Spry Fox and 6Waves had quietly settled a lawsuit related to their respective mobile titles, Triple Town and Yeti Town. In its original lawsuit Spry Fox accused 6Waves' Lolapps of blatantly copying its match-three game Triple Town when it released its game Yeti Town.
This morning we have learned from this GamesIndustry International report the details of that settlement. Spry Fox CEO David Edery tells GamesIndustry International that they now own the Yeti Town intellectual property as part of its settlement with 6Waves. 6Waves transferred the rights to game to Spry Fox last week, according to Edery.
Edery issued a statement to GII, which can be found below:
"We have amicably settled our lawsuit with 6waves. We are very happy with the outcome and glad to be finished with this matter. The full terms of the settlement are confidential, but I can disclose that as a consequence of the settlement, ownership of the Yeti Town IP has been transferred to Spry Fox. We look forward to putting 100% of our time and energy into our games, like the upcoming Leap Day, Steambirds 2 and Panda Poet mobile."
It looks like Spry Fox did not receive any monetary compensation from 6Waves, or they didn't disclose those facts to the media…
