  • Apotris Receives DMCA Takedown Notice
Tetris Holding, LLC has filed a DMCA takedown notice against the Game Boy Advance stacker game Apotris stating that "it reproduces copyrightable expression from our client’s game". TETR.IO owner osk notes that "Once a game has been made public, nothing in the copyright law prevents others from developing another game based on similar principles". Despite this setback, support will be continued with new features on the way, says the developer. As of the takedown, a little over a year after its release, the game had amassed just below 10,000 downloads.
