No Doubt win Acti court battle
In a bitterly contested court battle over the band's inclusion in Band Hero, Californian rockers No Doubt have taken the first round of their legal tussle with publisher Activision.
The band are upset over Activision's use of their likenesses in Band Hero, and an early ruling has seemingly gone against the game maker, who claimed First Amendment protection from the case.
No Doubt are concerned that the game's unlockable avatars turns them into little more than a 'karaoke act', and are annoyed that they can been seen performing other artists songs in the game.
A similar case regarding Kurt Cobain has also ruffled feathers the of widow love, who is annoyed that Guitar Hero sees the deceased rocker performing the songs of other artists. More on this soon.
