Lindsay Lohan loses appeal over "likeness" in GTA V art

Recommended Posts

Spider-Vice

Reuters reported today that after the final trial for the famous "bikini girl situation", celebrity Lindsay Lohan has lost the appeal by a 6-0 vote.

 

The Court of Appeals of the New York State's highest court said that Take-Two's depictions were "nothing more but cultural comment" and added that Take-Two owed the celebrity no damages. According to the judge, Judge Eugene Fahey, although an image like this may constitute a portrait to support an invasion of privacy, all these pictures depicted were generic twenty-something year old women, without any likeness to Lohan.

 

For those who don't remember, Lindsay Lohan sued Rockstar over this art from GTA V, claiming it was her likeness and that Rockstar had stolen her likeness. This also happened with the art that depicts a female police officer frisking a criminal.

 

The outcome of this was more than predictable. It's not the first time Rockstar is sued over some generic art they release for their games, with celebrities saying the company stole their likeness, as if they even need to do that... Time to get out of your shells, boys and girls.

 

 


 

Thanks Ben from RockstarIntel for the tip and Reuters for the original source!

I think we all could agree that this was a dumb controversy that shouldn't have happened in the first place.

She did win, she became the center of attention. It's all she ever wanted.

Surprisingly yes it was, lol. She wasn't going to get anywhere with this after the court themselves dismissed it back in 2016. Even more after these recent votes. Edited by Big_Smiley

That girl depicted in the artwork isn't disgusting enough to be Linday Lohan.

 

Add some wrinkles from years of drug and alcohol abuse, bloodshot eyes, and saggy breasts from age acceleration and then you have Lindsay Lohan.

Wait, wasn't that supposed to be Kate Upton? The resemblance is uncanny.

This.

 

Her claim that this girl resembles her is in itself an admission that she's a shallow, self obsessed amoeba; that's exactly what gta says these generic characters are ... good news, even if it's obvious

Wasn't the likeness Shelby Welinder? She was the one paid for the artwork.

 

Also, Jesus Christ the lawsuit was so long ago. When was that, 2014?

In the actual appeal, it even reads that she tried to accuse R* of using her voice and accent. Out of her freakin' mind.

 

As noted, plaintiff also alleges in the amended complaint that, through the dialogue of GTAV’s Jonas character, defendants have misappropriated her voice. Defendants submitted an affidavit asserting that her voice was not used in GTAV. In response, plaintiff did not dispute this fact but, rather, claimed that GTAV incorporated her “voice resemblance and accent.” Before this Court, plaintiff again implicitly concedes that GTAV did not use her “voice.” Accordingly, the amended complaint was also properly dismissed with respect to that claim.

Hmmm nice bike

This may actually be the dumbest "controversy" in the history of the series. I guess even with Jack Thompson being disbarred, Rockstar still can't get away from idiots trying to sue them over something. Someone from the reality show "Mob Wives" also tried to sue them, claiming that the mafia daughter or whoever that was that you rescue was based entirely on her. I guess you've gotta milk that 15 minutes while it lasts.

with the money R* has, you need to be sure when you start a lawsuit against them. we all know good lawers can turn black into white. for me it was lost before it even started

I'm still confused over how something as simple as an artwork turns into a lawsuit that goes on for 4 years (somehow).
