This massive credibility could help Zynga Inc to pull out itself from the downfall faced during the recent times.

It was disclosed during this week that the Zynga Inc has filed a lawsuit against the developers of the ‘Bang with Friends’, which is one of the casual sex applications. This is not the first and only company which was being targeted by Zynga Inc during the attempts to protect the company’s mark of ‘with friends’. Earlier during this year, Zynga Inc has sent a letter to the website operators of Cupid with friends. Previously, there were some other threats being sent by Zynga Inc against few other companies which were making use of the phrase of ‘with friends’ in their brand names. These incidences of threats to various companies have been sent from Zynga Inc though it seems like the company has let that drop when they agreed upon not to enter into gaming.
