The War Z Copies League of Legends TOS

October 17, 2012 -

Arktos Entertainment Group, the makers of the MMO The War Z, had an embarrassing moment this week as users on this Reddit thread revealed that the company copied the League of Legends terms of service agreement and inserted it into their game. Oops. This is particularly embarrassing because the company was founded by a Riot Games employee Sergey Titov...

A Reddit user looked closely at the terms of service document and noticed it was the same as the document in League of Legends, but had "The War Z" in the title. The user went on to point out that the document read "The War Z (the "Game") is a free-to-play computer game developed and operated by OP Productions."

As The Escapist rightly points out, while it is bad form to copy another company's terms of service agreement, there are likely no legal ramifications for doing so and it is apparently a common practice among attorneys.
