I think Daniel Cook has a great article about this, called "Plagiarism as a Moral Choice"

We should all ask more of ourselves and of each other.
Agree with this, there is another great perspective on this from Kevin Dent at http://www.pocketgamer.biz/r/PG.Biz/...ch=triple+town

It is not only the publishers but also the developers of course who share the blame in this copycat game.

I'm sorry to hear about the recent news http://techcrunch.com/2012/03/19/6wa...lapps-layoffs/ does this in anyway affect the marketing plans or your mobile strategy?

The decision today seems to undo some of what that merger agreement created last July and we hear it had to do with a limited runway of cash. Last summer, social gaming company Lolapps merged with game publisher 6waves to form a new entity that was a dual producer and publisher.
