PUBG devs can sue Chinese studio over EsUB movie that looks like PUBG
Biubiubiu was released as the world’s first Esports movie, and it looks very much like KRAFTON’s PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. While the film was being released and there were constant comparisons to PUBG, insider Daniel Ahmad reported, “It’s not a PUBG movie.”
However, it did not stop KRAFTON’s comparisons or concerns. As Ahmad explains, PUBG game administrators are considering filing a copyright infringement lawsuit.
Update on the below:
1. The directors said it's not a PUBG movie, despite basically being a PUBG movie.
2. Krafton said they are considering suing given the similarities to the PUBG IP.
