Sweet Baby Girl Copyright Infringement

Looks like Sweet Baby Girl daycare games are popular among not only kids but also copycat game developers. Here’s what we found on App Store today - Baby Day Care: Feed, Bath, and Dress Up Newborn Baby by Mohsin Waqar. Baby Day Care not only imitates Sweet Baby Girl Daycare 3 (and some elements from Daycare and Daycare 2 games) but actually uses the same graphics. The longer you play these games, the more similarities you can notice. Even minor graphic-edits (color saturation, image scaling, a few different game objects, etc.) can hardly hide the resemblance. You can easily see it from just a few screenshots. Launch Screen Baby Dress Up Baby Formula We submitted a copyright infringement claim to the App Store Legal Team and we’ll keep you updated how this funny story ends. UPDATE | January 27, 2015 After receiving our complaint, Mohsin Waqar took immediate action and removed Baby Day Care game from the App Store.
