“No Doubt Breach Of Contract Lawsuit Update

(CNS) Posted Tuesday February 15, 2011 – 2:34pm

Members of the band No Doubt can move forward with a breach-of-contract lawsuit against a video game developer over the use of their likenesses in the game “Band Hero,’ a state appellate court panel ruled today.

The three-justice panel of the 2nd District Court of Appeal upheld Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Kenji Machida’s decision last April 15 denying a dismissal motion by lawyers for Activision.

They had asked that the case be thrown out on grounds it violated the company’s right to free speech through creative expression.

Machida said the crux of the suit is an allegation that the firm used the digital avatars of the band to a greater extent than allowed under a contract.

“Band Hero” includes three songs from No Doubt in which players can perform as members of the group fronted by singer Gwen Stefani.

The suit, filed in November 2009, alleges they did not agree to let players use their virtual likenesses to perform other songs available on the game.”

You can read the actual legal filing from yesterday here, if you desire.  Sort of interesting…
