EA Sports to stop producing college football game
NEW YORK (AP) – Video game-maker Electronic Arts and the Collegiate Licensing Company have settled all lawsuits brought against the companies by former and current college athletes over the unauthorized use of the players’ images and likenesses in video games and other merchandise.
Earlier Thursday, EA Sports announced it wouldn’t make a college football video game next year because of the ongoing legal issues.
The NCAA is not part of the settlements, which includes the O’Bannon case. Brought by former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon, that lawsuit was asking for the NCAA, EA and CLC to share billions of dollars in revenues with college athletes.
The settlement was submitted for approval to the U.S. District Court in Northern California and the terms were confidential.
