Zynga has called EA's copyright lawsuit "ironic", accusing the firm of copying Zynga's CityVille with SimCity Social.

EA announced today it has filed a lawsuit on behalf of its Maxis Label against Zynga, for allegedly infringing EA's copyrights to its Facebook game, The Sims Social.

The lawsuit points out a large number of glaring similarities between EA's The Sims Social and Zynga's recently-released Facebook game The Ville.

Zynga general counsel Reggie Davis called the lawsuit "ironic" in his response to the news.

"We are committed to creating the most fun, innovative, social and engaging games in every major genre that our players enjoy. The Ville is the newest game in our 'ville' franchise - it builds on every major innovation from our existing invest-and-express games dating back to YoVille and continuing through CityVille and CastleVille, and introduces a number of new social features and game mechanics not seen in social games today," Davis told Game Informer.

"It's unfortunate that EA thought that this was an appropriate response to our game, and clearly demonstrates a lack of understanding of basic copyright principles. It's also ironic that EA brings this suit shortly after launching SimCity Social which bears an uncanny resemblance to Zynga's CityVille game. Nonetheless, we plan to defend our rights to the fullest extent possible and intend to win with players," he added.

Zynga has previously been accused of copying rival games Tiny Tower and Bingo Blitz
