Glass Egg, a Vietnam-based outsourcing firm has sued Gameloft, Gameloft USA, Gameloft Iberica, and Vivendi for alleged copyright infringement.

Glass Egg said Gameloft hired one of its employees to create 3D assets for Gameloft’s Asphalt series without the knowledge and permission of Glass Egg. The employee allegedly used equipment, hardware, and trade-secrets belonging to Glass Egg in the creation of those assets. Gameloft USA had urged the court to dismiss the case but the request was denied.
