Solid Oak Sketches, LLC claims that Take-Two should have too cough up some money for artwork in the game.
The company wants Take-Two to stop using the artwork and is seeking up to $150,000 per infringement. The tattoos in question are the words “Hold My Own” on James’ left bicep, a crown with butterflies on Bryant’s right bicep, and tattoos on the bodies of NBA players Eric Bledsoe, DeAndre Jordan and Kenyon Martin, according to court papers.
Solid Oak says it already tried to negotiate a licensing agreement with Take-Two for the sum of $1.14 million to no avail. That’s a hefty sum to be able to include the ink on LeBron’s arm for those free throw close-ups.
Damn Companies are really petty out here for money. I never heard of a company getting sued for using a players tattoo what so ever. What’ next, Suing the player for having the tattoo.
What yall think about it in the comments.
