According to Polygon, Ubisoft filed the lawsuit on Oct. 23 in California, alleging that the cheat makers and the site owner, a minor called J.V.L have violated copyright, and are “trafficking in circumvention devices”. The Mizusoft website sells only the “Budget Rainbow Six Siege Cheat,” which is a subscription that costs $13 a day or $77 per month. Ubisoft alleges that Mizusoft is siphoning money through a payment processor connected to a Web Design company known as Simply San Webdesign, which is allegedly owned by the site owner’s mother.
Ubisoft alleges that Mizusoft’s hacks earned the company thousand’s of dollars with Rainbow Six Siege players downloading these cheats, “thousands of times.”. Ubisoft claims that they have had to spend “enormous sums of money (and vast amounts of time” in order to repair the damage caused by the hackers and by extension Mizusoft. The company also alleges that the site owner J.V.L has boasted that his cheats have ruined the Rainbow Six Siege experience for many players. Ubisoft has listed ten other defendants in the lawsuit, most of whom are being sued under their discord pseudonyms. The company only knows the name of Mizusoft’s owner and is requesting $25,000 per violation of the court as well as the shut down of the site itself. At this current time, the Mizusoft site is no longer operational, stating that it “will be ceasing operations as of October 24, 2019”.
