According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, Gerald Willis, who composed the University of Nevada Las Vegas fight song “Win With the Rebels” (don’t ask us), has sued EA for copyright infringement after the company has used his song in over 10 titles spanning from 2005 to 2008.

Mr Willis would like $150,000 for each infringement, which, according to Kotaku could mean £1.5 million if it applies to each release, but possibly several trillion dollars if it is for every copy sold.
