Activision Publishing has filed a Digital Millennium Copyright Act subpoena against Reddit Inc this week to get the identity behind a Reddit user. The subpoena was filed in California court on February 14.

Reddit user Assyrian2410 posted on r/ModernWarfare last week a post titled “I found this image online, not sure what it is.” The post showcased what appeared to be an artwork for “Call of Duty: Warzone.” The user quickly deleted their post from Reddit and deleted their account, but the image spread around the internet.

Per THR, Activision is looking to identify who is the leaker behind the Assyrian2410 account to identify how the image was leaked.

“Reddit is the service provider to which the subject of the subpoena-Reddit user ‘Assyrian2410’ – posted infringing Activision content. The Content infringes Activision’s exclusive rights under copyright law. Specifically, it infringes Activision’s rights in its popular video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.”

Activision is seeking the information from Reddit to then pursue legal action against Assyrian2410 for posting the image online.

At the time of this writing, Activision has yet to even announce Call of Duty Warzone officially yet. All information has just been leaks via sources and in-game files. There still is no confirmed release time table for this mode.
