No Doubt's Legal Fight Against "Band Hero"...

Posted by: Jason Tate (05/30/12)
No Doubt's case against Band Hero's publisher, Activision, is going to get a trial in front of a jury.
From the ArticleThe band originally filed the suit in November of 2009 claiming that Activision misled the music group over how their likenesses would be used in the game. They claim Activision never told them that they would be used as unlockable avatars for completing certain aspects of the title that could be used to perform other songs not normally performed by No Doubt. They described the feature as a "a virtual karaoke circus act" in their lawsuit.

Never thought I'd see a case like this make it to jury. Interesting to see how it'll play out.

It's nice to know that No Doubt has the time to waste its energy on something like this.

Jeez, as a hardcore gamer I hate Activision, but this is a dumb lawsuit. Who cares if they could be used to sing other songs. Wasn't Taylor Swift in the game too? She isn't suing...

I feel like they need to lighten up. I don't even get how they're upset by this to begin with. Not to mention that people hardly play these games anymore anyways.
