The Humvee is just automatically connected to the US military. Just like M4's, and the Abrams tanks.

Do the makers of Abrams tanks get upset when their designs end up in games?

Am general is probably just mad cause only a few Rich countries want to buy that gas guzzling thing and has limited world wide appeal military wise anymore as its outdated. So the CEO takes Activision to court for royalties to pay for enough money to buy his new house somewhere.

Humvee suing Activision over Call of Duty.

Every milsim out there is holding their breath.
Call of Duty's use of the Humvee "is a key selling feature of the games" ok

Yeah, I'm pretty sure maybe .0001% of players even noticed if they were accurate or had the Humvee logo on them. They made it sound like the only reason the games are selling well is they have Humvees in them, when no one gives one single F about the vehicles or vehicle branding.

Certainly one selling point of these games (CoD, BF, ArmA, DCS World, etc.) is the inclusion of real-world military hardware, from the smallest gun up to the biggest ship. It seems ludicrous to me that a game maker would have to negotiate conditions to use the likeness of a military vehicle in the game, but maybe I'm off-base.

How do the movies do it? The Humvee was (despite the title) the most prominent vehicle in Blackhawk Down. Did AM General LLC get anything for that? Did Grumman get anything for letting the F-14 be the star of Top Gun?

Also, CoD: Modern Warfare came out a decade ago. Has the statute of limitations passed for any legal action?
