Guitar Hero now victim of a lawsuit


The song “What I like about you,” that is presented as a cover version in Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s is now the subject of a lawsuit being launched by the band who are the original authors of the song. Activision did have permission to use a cover version of the song in the game, but the band say that the cover is “too good” and sounds and looks too much like the original Romantics version.

The lawsuit really stems from the fact that the band believes that the images and sound likeness that are used in the game look far too similar to the Romantics. The band is seeking to have the game pulled off the shelves and have also requested an injunction.

Also named in the lawsuit is Wavegroup Sound, which recorded the cover version for use in the game, in addition to publisher Acitvision.
