Romantics sue makers of ‘Guitar Hero’ game over sound-alike song
CNET news reports:
Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but try telling that to The Romantics.
The new-wave rock band has filed a lawsuit against Guitar Hero game publisher Activision for its use of a sound-alike recording of What I Like About You in Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s, according to a report in the Detroit Free Press. The band is also seeking an injunction against the game, which could result in the game being pulled from store shelves.
