No Doubt settle with Activision in a long-running dispute over the ‘Band Hero’ game.

November 2012


The recently re-launched No Doubt have settled their case¬† with Activision of the use of their name and images in Band hero. The iconic band were one of a number of artists who did a deal with the gaming firm to appear in an edition of the various ‘Hero’ games but subsequently complained that users could play any song using their avatar, and not just their own tracks. The gaming giant insisted participating artists knew of this facility, but No Doubt argued the games firm had breached its contract and rights. Various attempts by Activision to have the case dismissed failed, but an out-of-court settlement was reached this week, before the dispute could get a proper court hearing.
