Chinese Game 300 Heroes A Mash-Up of Copyrighted Material

Some game developers in China are known for taking liberties with copyrighted material (read: ignoring copyrights altogether), but a MOBA-style game called 300 Heroes pointed out by Crusader Cast is probably the most blatant mash-ups of stolen material you'll ever see.

300 Heroes rips-off every franchise or intellectual property including the gameplay of League of Legends combined with skins slapped onto existing LoL champions. Those skins are rips offs of characters from Naruto, Shrek, Disney, One Piece and Angry Birds and the lobby's backdrop is stolen from Plants vs. Zombies. The game would not stand a chance if it were available anywhere else but China (it's not) because lawyers from every corner of the earth would sue the game's developers into the stone age.

You can check out the Crusader Cast featuring the game to your left to see just how badly this game infringes on so many different copyrights.

    I thought League of Legends is (at least) partially owned by a Chinese company. It'd be funny to see them go after this game… but at the same time, it's probably not worth it for a Chinese company to do anything copyright-wise in their own country.

    What I find funny, tho, is that while China will not recognize the copyrights of anyone outside of their country…just try to do the same thing with their copyrighted materials.  They will take you to court.

    Now now, this was clearly done for justice!  All those other media producers should have collaborated to produce this game, but it was up to some poor company to do it for them.

    Well. At least this project has made a statement, even though they weren't trying to do that.

    Or even get attention in the first place.
