Although EA is not obligated,they should send the family a small token of their appreciation.....

If your father was Elvis and you found out that a company was making millions off of his likeness, would you not try to get a cut of that? Especially, taking into account that you are now owner of all his assets. For most famous people, their likeness is an asset. That's why they put tigerwoods on the box of a razor. To sell razors.

Anyways, its the law. The only reason EA won was because the guy died before the law went into effect.

The thing is EA arent using his likeness... Just the Dilinger gun. Doesnt seem like that big a deal to me.
