THQ in WWE licensing row
THQ have filed a lawsuit against entertainment firm Jakks Pacific, the game maker's WWE licensing collaborator, claiming that Jakks doesn't have the legal right to extend the publisher's official WWE license.
Smackdown vs. Raw and Legends of Wrestlemania are of course based on WWE's license via Jakks, and the toy maker wants to renew the WWE license - prompting THQ's complaint.
THQ believe Jakks can't make a unilateral decision to renew the license with the WWE, even though the contract ends this year. Jakks want an extension until 2014.
Jakks, THQ and the WWE have all locked courtroom horns before. Thanks Gamaustra.
