Last year, No Doubt sued games publisher Activision Blizzard over the use of the band’s avatars in its Band Hero game. At issue was the way they could be unlocked and used with any song, not just their own – a similar complaint to the one over Kurt Cobain in Guitar Hero 5.

The publisher has the right to appeal. Source: Los Angeles Times
