I heard he's also suing everybody for not paying him royalties for every use of the phrase "oral sex."

He's also suing Pepsi Co. for not giving everyone in America a free Dr. Pepper.

There are so many cases like this against Activision now, that it simply can't be a coincidence anymore.

Ehhh, this stuff usually pisses me off. But I hate music games, and will be happy if Activision loses this case.

Is he going to sue Slash next for the cover of his new album?? "

No, he owns the rights to Welcome to the Jungle and agreed to license it under the condition that it was not used in conjuction with a likeness of Slash.
Kinda silly, but kinda makes sense. It'll all boil down to what the paperwork says I suppose.

I say screw the money. He should sue them to stop making the Guitar Hero games. It will only help everyone.

He owns the rights to everything visual and stylistic pertaining to 80s and early 90s Guns n Roses.

The lawsuit goes in Axl's favor from what I can tell, but I'm sure Activision has a side to it all.

Despite the fact that Warriors of Rock was an excellent entry into the series and all...

Haha... yeah it's a good game now, but no matter how many times they say they will support DLC for the games, it's always a few months worth of DLC then they're onto the next game.
