This could possibly be more amusing than Lindsey Lohan's lawsuit against Rockstar. You may remember Manuel Noriega from his Panama dictatorship in the 80s that kicked off a war between the US Navy SEALs and his military that lasted all of 8 hours. He was arrested for drug trafficking, racketeering, money laundering, and murder. He may be a horrible human being, but he has feelings, too! So many, he's suing Activision for using and exploiting his image in Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
Noriega claims he was portrayed as "an antagonist and portrayed as the culprit of numerous fictional heinous crimes, creating the false impression that defendants are authorized to use plaintiff's image and likeness. This caused plaintiffs to receive profits they would not have otherwise received."
Interactive entertainment lawyer Jas Purewal told the BBC that Noriega's claims are a little problematic.
"Noriega isn't a US citizen or even a resident," he said. "This means that his legal claim becomes questionable, because it's unclear on what legal basis he can actually bring a case against Activision."
Bad, Activision! How dare you portray a dictator as a dictator in your game? I suppose we should all be thankful Hitler isn't still alive.
