Bungie’s Claims Against Cheat Service Have Been Partially Dismissed In Court

Bungie's claims against AimJunkies and Phoenix Digital for copyright infringement have been partially dismissed in the court of law.

Last year, Bungie filed a complaint against a cheating service by the name of AimJunkies and Phoenix Digital (who helped create the cheating software) on the grounds of copyright infringement. Now the court of law has given a judgment on the matter, and it isn’t in Bungie’s favor – as reported by TorrentFreak.

While settlements for the court case were underway and AimJunkies had removed Destiny 2 cheats from its website, Bungie allegedly tried to request the court for a default judgment without any prior notice – which would then allow Bungie to move forward with the case without any opposition. This move was then responded with a motion to dismiss default judgment by AimJunkies- since the company hadn’t infringed upon Bungie’s copyrights.

US District Court Judge Thomas Zilly has also partially agreed with AimJunkies on the matter, and as it stands now – Bungie hasn’t pleaded sufficient evidence as to how a cheating software infringes on a company’s copyrighted material.

“Notably, Bungie has not pleaded any facts explaining how the cheat software constitutes an unauthorised copy of any of the copyrighted works identified in the complaint. Bungie’s complaint must contain more than a ‘formulaic recitation of the elements of a cause of action’,” he said.

The court case hasn’t been resolved yet, because Bungie said that AimJunkies was also infringing upon the company’s trademarks. As such, we will be seeing more on the case in the near future, so stay tuned for all updates. Bungie had also joined forces with Ubisoft for filing a court case against a cheating subscription service by the name of Ring-1 – read more on that through here.
