471.62. Crytek is the copyright holder of the copyrighted CryEngine computer program. The CryEngine computer program constitutes copyright expression protected by 17 U.S.C. § 101, et seq. A true and correct copy of Crytek’s application for copyright registration is attached as Exhibit 1.500.62. Crytek is the copyright holder of the copyrighted CryEngine computer program. The CryEngine computer program constitutes copyright expression protected by 17 U.S.C. § 101, et seq. A true and correct copy of Crytek’s Certificate of Registration is attached as Exhibit 1.
472.63. Defendants have reproduced, displayed, and distributed unauthorized copies of the CryEngine computer program to which they had access. Such unauthorized copies exceed the permissible license terms and therefore constitute unlawful reproduction, display, and distribution of the CryEngine computer program.501.63. Under the GLA, Defendants were granted a limited license to embed the copyrighted CryEngine computer program in a single video game called Star Citizen. However, the GLA did not grant a license to embed the copyrighted CryEngine computer program in content sold and marketed as a separate, standalone video game. Squadron 42 is currently being sold and marketed as a separate, standalone video game.
473.64. Defendants' acts violate the exclusive rights of Crytek as the copyright holder to reproduce, display and distribute the CryEngine computer program and to create derivative works from it, as set forth in 17 U.S.C. § 106.502.64. Defendants have intentionally reproduced, displayed, and distributed unauthorized copies of the CryEngine computer program to which they had access. Such unauthorized copies exceed the permissible license terms and therefore constitute unlawful reproduction, display, and distribution of the CryEngine computer program.
474.65. Crytek is informed and believes and thereon alleges that the infringement of Crytek's copyright was willful, reckless, and/or in blatant disregard for Crytek's rights as a copyright holder, and as such, claims willful, exemplary and enhanced statutory damages, and/or a preclusion from claiming certain deductions or other benefits during the calculation of damages.503.65. Defendants' intentional acts violate the exclusive rights of Crytek as the copyright holder to reproduce, display and distribute the CryEngine computer program and to create derivative works from it, as set forth in 17 U.S.C. § 106.
475.66. Defendants' infringements of Crytek's copyrights are the direct and proximate cause of damages to Crytek, and Crytek is entitled to compensatory damages in an amount to be determined at trial.504.66. Defendants continue to intentionally reproduce, display, and distribute new versions of Squadron 42 that embed the copyrighted CryEngine computer program without authorization.
476.67. Crytek is further entitled to recover from Defendants all of the gains, profits, and advantages they have obtained as a result of the infringement, and for disgorgement of any additional gains, profits, and advantages Defendants obtained that are attributable to their infringement of the CryEngine computer program in an amount to be proven at trial, together with attorneys' fees and costs pursuant to 17 U.S.C. §§ 504 and 505. Case 2:17-cv-08937 Document 1 Filed 12/12/17 Page 12 of 15 Page ID #:12505.67. Additionally, if RSI is not deemed to be bound by the GLA as if it were a signatory thereto, then RSI's intentional reproduction, display, and distribution of the Star Citizen video game that embeds the copyrighted CryEngine computer program is also unauthorized.
