Back in February 2012 we published an article called “Top 10 highest grossing video games ever“. Over the past few days we’ve been receiving emails about a very similar piece run by Business insider. Their list and revenue numbers are identical, and the article doesn’t cite any sources. nor do they mention where they got the data from. We know where the data came from: At DigitalBattle we painstakingly compiled that revenue data ourselves.
Now, DigitalBattle is a small site, and Business Insider probably couldn’t care less about stealing our stuff, but that doesn’t mean we’re gonna stay silent and be taken advantage of. We worked damn hard on that article and compiling all the revenue data. Worse, because they’re a much larger publication, other new sites are reprinting their work and wrongly citing BI as the source. Which it isn’t.
On the other hand, we feel flattered to have been plagiarised by such a worthy establishment like Business Insider and its writer Ana Douglas. Thanks, guys! And keep up the great “work”!
UPDATE: Business Insider and writer Ana Douglas have since updated the original article with proper sourcing. We appreciate and respect that.
