Video game developer Ubisoft is suing a company named MizuSoft for selling Rainbow Six: Siege cheats. The suit is on multiple counts.
According to official court documents, Ubisoft filed the lawsuit on October 23. It accuses MizuSoft of "creating, selling, distributing, maintaining, servicing, supporting, and updating malicious software products that are specifically designed to (and have no other purpose but to) enable their users to cheat at R6S, at the expense of Ubisoft and its legitimate customers."
MizuSoft only sold one product, "Budget Edition Rainbow Six: Siege Cheat." Instead of a one-time payment, players purchase a subscription which provides them with access to cheats like damage buffs and seeing through objects. The service cost roughly around $13 a day, $33 a week and $77 a month.
MizuSoft is registered to a minor, with the money passing through his mother's website design business. Her name is Sandra Rejik and according to the document, Ubisoft believes she is responsible for collecting, processing and transmitting funds from the sale of their product.
Ubisoft is also suing ten other defendants and is pushing for a $25,000 fine per violation from each. No official statements have been made by either party yet.
