Zynga settles lawsuit over ‘wholesale theft’ of data

By | Sep 12, 2013

Game maker had accused a former executive of taking confidential game designs to a rival game maker last year.

Zynga has reportedly settled a pair of lawsuits with rival game maker Kixeye over a former Zynga employee who was accused of “wholesale theft” of Zynga trade secrets before joining Kixeye.

Kixeye admitted in a cross-complaint that Patmore did indeed share two documents with the gaming company but said that neither one had to do with Zynga trade secrets or proprietary information. Kixeye’s complaint accused Zynga of inferring with its recruiting practices and business relations.

“I accept responsibility for making a serious mistake by copying and taking Zynga confidential information when I resigned from Zynga,” he said. “I understand the consequences of my actions and I sincerely apologize to Zynga and my former colleagues.”
