More on the class action lawsuit filed by former college athletes against the NCAA and EA has been reported by USA Today, which states that if former Nebraska and Arizona State quarterback Sam Keller and former UCLA basketball player Ed O’Bannon can prove their rights were violated, EA could end up paying around $1 billion. This equals out to around $1,000 per player likeness used, and when all 3,630 players, and the games are added up, that’s the figure you get. The lawsuit states EA “knowing, willful and intentionally,” used players’ likenesses without providing compensation. EA says it has the right to use these likenesses, even for unnamed athletes in the game due to the First Amendment. EA has 14 days to respond to a lawsuit. Thanks D’toid.
