Since the gaming industry is learning fast, while you can convert anything to NFT, they should be things you are entitled to do. Even many marketplaces, including GameStop, have found themselves having to remove unauthorized products NFTs game from their platforms.
The most recent of these incidents come from Activisionwho was accused of inserting the skin that was stolen Added to Call of Duty: Warzone.
case of plagiarism?
The allegedly stolen skin first appeared in Deadrop, an NFT game developed by Dr. Disrespect. Fans on Twitter pointed out the similarities between the two skins, who were outraged by the apparent plagiarism.
But the team behind the Deadrop appears to have been notified of the incident. Robert Pauling, Head of Studio at midnight communitywho developed Deadrop, tweeted that the studio should have named the character after him if they were going to copy his work.
Last month, 10,000 NFTs of in-game characters were released to early buyers, called Deadrop founders. All characters have a unique design that they seem to be influenced by cyberpunk. Now, it looks like one of them has been uploaded by Activision.
Sadly, this isn’t the first time Activision has been accused of plagiarism, as they previously removed a Loyal Samoyed skin that was very similar to one made by another developer.
