Warner Brothers and its fellow content distributors have made a habit of suing others for alleged copyright infringement, but now it seems the tables are turning just a little bit. Ars Technica reports that Warner Brothers is being sued by the creator of the infamous Keyboard Cat YouTube meme for allegedly using the famous feline in its game Scribblenauts without permission. The Keyboard Cat creator, who is joined in the lawsuit by the creator of the “Nyan Cat” meme, is demanding an undisclosed sum from Warner Brothers for the rights to use Keyboard Cat in its games. Ars Technica notes that the case will be tried in California.
