Does EA have lawyers?
I just had a short look at Zynga's latest Facebook game: The Ville. It is an utter and complete rip-off of EA's The Sims Social. Even the user interface looks like a Sims game. Now Zynga got away in the past with ripping off small indie game companies. But that was because Zynga was the big guys with the big lawyers. I can only assume that EA has somewhat more muscular defenses if some upstart is attacking one of their most valuable brands.
