For some reason we never quite got round to covering iPhone and Android game Joustin’ Beaver. It’s a game by developer RC3 featuring a beaver hero with a distinctive Justin Bieber hairstyle. Now Bieber’s lawyers are demanding that the game be removed from the app stores. “Please be advised, at no time has our Client, our Client’s parental guardian, or our Client’s designated representatives entered into an agreement with you or your related business entities, or otherwise granted permission to you or any third party, to create the App,” says the legal letter, according to TechCrunch. The tricky thing is that the app doesn’t use Bieber’s actual music or other copyrighted content. “The game is a parody and is protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution. Nowhere in the game is Justin Bieber’s name, photo, image, or life story mentioned,” says RC3 in its own statement.
