Roblox Alleges Hong Kong Toy Company Ripped Off Avatars to Sell Dolls

Roblox Corp. accused WowWee Group Ltd. of copying its avatars from its Roblox platform to sell dolls and metaverse code, filing a copyright and trademark suit in federal California court.

Roblox said WowWee violated its terms of use and openly used the Roblox trademark to market its physical dolls as My Avastars, the complaint in the US District Court for the Northern District of California. WowWee also partnered with a Roblox developer to sell codes redeemable as metaverse visions of the infringing dolls for exclusive use on Roblox’s platform, it said.
