The Tetris Company, a corporation located in Hawaii that licenses the name to other parties and which routinely threatens legal action against clones of the popular game, has sent a DMCA takedown notice to Google, prompting the search giant to remove 35 Tetris-like games from the Android market. Several of the games that were removed from the market were not actually using the trademarked Tetris name or any artwork from the original game--they merely had gameplay mechanics that resembled the Russian classic.
