Italian neurosurgeon Sergio Canavero will show the complaint to Hideo Kojima and Konami for the unauthorized use of his image and his theories about head transplaint in an Italian TV program.
This is getting way out of hand. This is a clusterf**k.
This is getting way out of head. This is a clusterf**k. Fixed. So all bald doctors of a certain age who wear round rimmed glasses have a case against Konami now? No wonder Kojima is laughing. However, Sergio is obviously using this to publicize his own activities in some weird publicity switcheroo.
Why would Kojima be laughing...He clearly has stated he is going to be suing Konami AND Kojima
Why would he be laughing ? Because the case will amount to little if he can prove that indeed its based on the likeness of an existing and paid actor instead . And he can't really prevent anyone from conjuring up a story about current news like an head transplant
deadpoolio316 you didn't see the tweet of the headless Big Boss clone army then?
I'm starting to think that the good doctor misheard "hand" for "head". He won't win, unfortunately.
his likeness maybe (and thats a stretch since it doesnt look exactly like him..), but his theories? its a video game.. u can pull ideas from anywhere to write a story. Not like they stealing his work in the field lol..
Yeah...except there is no confirmation of head transplantation appearing at all in TPP. Which is why this is so stupid lol.
yea well technically they already did it in mgs4
Exactly they would have to be trying to publish his work as their own for him to have a case if anything if this is real they are advertising his work. That is why I think this is fake he would know this. What they are doing is freedom of speech you can talk about anyone work as long as you don't try to take credit for it. I at first thought him leaving Konami was real but now that they are going this far if this is fake then no way he is leaving.
lol kojima is cathing many with their pants down (imo) good work kojima as always.
This is not going to end well...
Plot twist, it's another Kojima ruse and so is him leaving Konami.
Yea, seems like it
It seems like a ruse of some sort
Why do you need to go on TV for an issue that you would normally deal with in court? It's not that big a deal doc, a genius was inspired by you. You should be honored, don't be a Lindsay Lohan...also if you had an issue with a character from a trailer that was revealed in 2013 then you should probably have said something then, not 2 years later. If you are doing this because some over-reaching fan theory just became popular then I will probably have to doubt how professional you are because you are just seeking attention. What's next, are you going to sue the English actor that character is really based off of because he was born under Gemini, the code name for your head transplant project? This is getting ridiculous.
I will try to watch this on TV tomorrow if I get the chance, really curious about this story. I never heard of this doctor here in Italy however.
