Gold digging *****.
/goes to do something more productive, like staring at the wall.
I don't get why it's so weird. Dead folk get brought back to live in all kinds of ways. Film being the most obvious. Why is a game any different.
What a bitch...
Awww is the poor thing feeling starved of attention again?
Why can she sue them? Can you copyright someone's appearance? I realise that if not she could be going on the ground of it being damaging, but surely a simulation of a famous musician being on-stage enjoying himself can't be damaging, surely?
Likeness rights are pretty much copyrighting someone's appearance. As Courtney owns Cobain's she can license them out to whoever she chooses, including Activision for use in GH5...which she did. ANd is now angry that Activision took some liberties with it. Like making Kurt rap.
Er, sounds about right to me. She may be whacko, but I highly doubt she's doing this for the money.
Jees... her twitter is pretty confusing. And she should learn to spell.
Looking through the Twitter, it sounds like she's doing it for the Money, TBH. She's been bitching about that all day.
She licensed activision. Sorry to hear that she now regrets the decision. Hope she loses the court case (unlikely, not impossible)
Is that really possible to own someone else's appearance? I can see this getting thrown out of court.
...What was the deal with Nirvana anyway? Completely over-hyped...
George Lucas famously owns Mark Hamil's iirc. yes, likeness rights are a real, genuine commodity.
I think it's more a sobriety thing, then a spelling thing.
fair argument... and she still claims (on her twitter): "**** all of you. I am a good mother." (to paraphrase)
It was a time and place thing.
Had to be there, at the right age...
Smells like teen spirit kicked a lot of it off.....
Left the Techno era and went into the grunge era.
No more Charlie and his cat (meow), and distorted guitars abound
in the article mean?
Ah right I get it darn abreviations
I don't see what right she has to complain, she licensed them to use him in game, she surely would've seen the finished product before giving the go ahead for him to be in the game so I see no reason why she wants to sue them. I don't see why anyone can feel wierd about playing a dead man, ROCK BAND THE BEATLES FOR GOD SAKE!!!!
not safe for work.
Having Kurt bumped off was quite a shrewd business move by Courtney.
I totally understand what Courtney Love is doing having read a transcript of her speech to the Digital Hollywood online entertainment conference in New York on May 16 of this year:
