SAN FRANCISCO - Zynga is firing back at rival game maker Electronic Arts in a legal tussle it says goes beyond who copied whose game.

While saying EA's copyright infringement lawsuit filed last month had "no merit," Zynga, on Friday, filed a countersuit against EA for allegedly violating antitrust laws by trying to prevent its employees from defecting to Zynga.

Last month, EA sued Zynga, saying that its new game "The Ville" infringes EA's game, "The Sims Social."

Zynga's legal response and counterclaim were filed in the U.S. District Court in San Francisco.

Organizations: Electronic Arts, The Ville, US District Court
