Identity theft! Well, not exactly, but some football players are pretty annoyed at Electronic Arts for using their likenesses, names or image in the NCAA Football games.
Now Ryn Hart and Troy Taylor are suing EA for invading their privacy. Or something. The lawsuit was filed by attorney Keith McKenna of Montclair, who states that the two men "never" gave EA permission to include them in the games.
"EA (Electronic Arts), the NCAA and CLC (Collegiate Licensing Company) have reviewed the complaint, and do not believe that the claims have merit," said Rob Semsey for EA SPORTS. "EA, the NCAA and CLC regularly conduct reviews of EA's NCAA-branded games, and we do not believe that any violations of student-athlete rights or NCAA bylaws have occurred."
Ryan Hart quarterbacked the Scarlet Knights from 2002 to 2005, and Troy Taylor played football during his college years before moving up to the New York Jets between 1990 to 1991.
