Let’s party like it’s 2009! An artist is suing games publisher Activision over the use of their likeness in the Band Hero game, just like the good old days. Admittedly, Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine is nearly two years behind the likes of Courtney Love and No Doubt, but better late than never. Levine’s complaint is the same as those acts: he agreed to have his avatar appear in the game Band Hero, but didn’t realise that it could be used to sing other people’s songs. Levine’s lawsuit accuses Activision of “fraudulent inducement, breach of contract, violation of the common-law right of publicity and unfair business acts or practices”. We wonder why it’s taken so long, given the high-profile nature of the Love and No Doubt lawsuits back in 2009. Source: Kotaku
