Sports video games strive for realism by closely replicating real-life players, but digitally reproducing their tattoos has led to court fights over ownership rights.
talk about greyest of a grey area, they just replace the authentic ones and replace them with generic kind. But that also hurt that person's authenticity....
Not just authenticity but personality too. Most people have some pretty good meanings behind the tattoos that they choose. Adding a generic one or removing them all together causes players to lose part of who they are. Granted in this instance it’s a video game representation but that representation is a reflection of each individual player.
First world problem to me.
Hell itcost me 99 dollars deluxe edtion formy player to be a crub at overall 75 pay the artist a few bucks
The game costs a lot so the publisher can afford to pay the artist royalties. I think.
In modern computer games, each company tries to make players as realistic as possible.
who owns the tattoos?
Yeah, what the flying ****? How can someone own something that has become a part of your body? Creepy.
I think I the tatoo artists who usually design it.
I love how some moron downvoted you despite you being 100% correct as per the fucking article.
ya that makes sense, but I think there are times when exceptions should be made. If we are drawing a person the tattoos should be fair game, if we are just copying the tattoos for any other reason then sure, sue them.
Honestly, I do not buy NBA because a basketball player has a tattoo I like..
This is an odd fact I was unaware of, I dont do the tattoo thing so I'm unaware of the rules. Does this apply to everyone or just celebrities
Unless they design the tattoo themselves.
This is just stupid and petty to sue over digital tatoos that the players already paid to play placed on their bodies. We are not buying a basketball game because Brandon Ingram's tatoos are basically a mural personified. They should counter sue for having their time wasted. Only in America...
What a joke. Society is screwed, it gets dumber by the day.
