Players preval over EA, NCAA and CLC in player likeness suit


In a 2-1 decision, a panel of judges in the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court's decision to deny EA a motion to strike the athletes' complaint as a strategic lawsuit against public participation. Sam Keller, who played quarterback at Arizona State University and the University of Nebraska, had filed a lawsuit objecting to EA's use of his likeness in the company's NCAA Football series of video games.

"EA's use does not qualify for First Amendment protection as a matter of law because it literally recreates Keller in the very setting in which he has achieved renown," said the judges in the majority opinion.
