    Fake MW3 Website

    Publisher Activision has charged the owner of the website ModerWarfare3.com. The site was linking to the official website of Battlefield 3, the competiting shooter from Electronic Arts.

    Meanwhile the site does not link the visitors to the official Battlefield-website, but ModernWarfare3.com has been filled with criticism on Modern Warfare 3.

    According Activision, the domainname and the content is leading to confusion, because it looks like the official website of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

    The publisher also finds the linking to the Battlefield 3-website confusing, and it harms the reputation of Modern Warfare 3. Hence the reason why Activision wants that domainname under their cotrol.

    Monty Python
    The website ModernWarfare3.com has now been changed to something else than linking to the Battlefield-website. Who is the maintaner of the website is not public. The website also says why Modern Warfare would be a bad serie, and that Battlefield 3 a better game is.

    On the frontpage is now a partly re-recorded scene of Monty Python's The Life of Brian. Here you can see that a few soldier's can't hold their laugh back when they hear that their boss is playing Modern Warfare.
