EA is set to pay athletes over $60 million after a lawsuit settlement takes action over using player likenesses without permission, which may see players taken from their sports game for their next iterations.
You' ve f*^*ed it up EA?
I wonder if that is a significant dent into EA's pockets.
No, it's the cost of one to two games.
ouch... that cant be good for the bottom line.
Wow it actually happened
^Can't be good for stocks either
it would of been cheaper to pay them for there likeness
Not really. I would bet that most of those athletes would have demanded way more than $4000. That's about what that amounts to. I don't know if the $60 million is before or after the lawyers get their greedy mitts on the cash. Ooops...just read and each athlete will get "at least $74."
- Whether his assigned jersey number appeared on a virtual avatar. Seriously? Likeness and photos are one thing, but a number? That's stupid. - All athletes who made a valid claim will receive “at least $74." Lol!! Enjoy your big payday!!
well expect a game cancellation from EA soon. from there you'll know which ever game got cancelled that it sucked in the first place.
EA needs to stop with nba live already, just let it go.
