Ending as quickly as it began, Alibaba and Ejoy.com have terminated "Area F2", the mobile clone of Rainbow Six: Siege that Ubisoft accused of being a bit closer to illegal infringement.

But what did Area F2 have to say about the closure?

How were Google and Apple used by Ubisoft to achieve this result?

And what can we assume about the future from the facts of this case?

The power of retail is undiminished...in Virtual Legality.
