Ubisoft has successfully defended itself from a lawsuit brought on by Digital Reg, claiming that Ubisoft’s Uplay violated several patents on digital rights management techniques.
“Ubisoft is determined to aggressively fight patent cases that target the company and its innovations and technologies,” a spokesperson said. “Ubisoft is committed to defending itself against patent assertion entities–referred to as patent ‘trolls’–that assert invalid or inapplicable patents against the company or the industry.”
Digital Reg filed lawsuits in 2011, against a number of companies including Zynga, Valve and Electronic Arts. All three of those companies reached settlement agreements with Digital Reg in 2013.
