Fight Night Round 4 Lawsuit

Electronic Arts sued over Fight Night Round 4 on Destructoid outlines a legal action from Fighters Inc., a sports licensing group that claims to hold group licensing contracts for an unstated number of the fighters depicted in Fight Night Round 4. According to their complaint, EA "undermined the interests" of these boxers by signing them to individual contracts rather than work through Fighters, Inc. They say EA took "money out of the pockets of all professional boxers who are participating in the group licensing program," and that "its intentional misconduct could completely destroy what we are trying to build to empower today's professional boxers with the same marketing and earning presence that is enjoyed by professional athletes in all major sports." They are seeking $15 million USD in compensation and damages.
