A tattoo artist has filed suit against EA and former NFL players Ricky Williams, who appeared on the cover of 2004’s NFL Street, according to PatentArcade. The artist claims to have only recently discovered the depiction, which is alleged to include a copyrighted piece of tattoo art from 2003. A similar case popped up in November last year over UFC Undisputed 3. Suits of this kind have been successful in the past.
