Activision doesn't even need a legal team with fans like these. Police protection, maybe.

In a since-deleted blog post peeped by both Gamefront and Blue’s News, Pacific Rim concept artist Francisco Fruiz suggested the upcoming Apocalypse DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 plagiarised a couple of his paintings.
“They just should call me and hire me, I’m a big fan of their games,” he joked.
One Call of Duty fan put together a video showing off how the art and maps compare, reportedly presenting some pretty compelling similarities, but later deleted his YouTube channel, telling GameFront he received a number of “insane threats” from the shooter’s fans, which is entirely unsurprising given the madness Treyarch’s own patches bring out of the woodworks.
Although other users mirrored the video, even these have been deleted, leaving only second-hand reports as evidence that anything ever happened.
