    Lightbulb Zynga Sues Brazilian Dev For Copying Its Games [Slashdot]

The settlement resulted in the loss of jobs for many Vostu employees. How Zynga managed to carry out such actions while keeping a straight face after dealing with similar allegations remains to be seen."

    Mark Pincus, CEO of Zynga:
    I donít fucking want innovation. Youíre not smarter than your competitor. Just copy what they do and do it until you get their numbers.
