Selena Gomez levies $10 million lawsuit against mobile game for using her likeness
The lawsuit states that the game is “doubtful” and “riddled with errors”
The semblance of Selena Gomez was used without her permission in dressing games, and so she filed a $ 10 million lawsuit against the developer (via Kotaku).
Clothing Forever – Game Style is available on the Apple App Store. This puts the player in the image of a stylist for “the most beautiful models and celebrities”; such as Kardashian, Gigi, Beyonce, Taylor and others “, and sells game currency at prices from 1 to 100 dollars. Singer sues Guangzhou Feidong Software Technology Co. and MutantBox Interactive Limited for unauthorized use of its image in the game.
“The defendants never asked, consulted, or informed Gomez about using any of her rights to publicity in connection with the game,” the lawsuit said. “And if asked, Gomez would not agree to such use for the Game, which obviously relies on the dubious practice of attracting users to make in-game purchases of up to $ 99.99 to finance imaginary expenses in the Game and unlock functions. “.
She was shocked to discover her similarities in the game because she “carefully oversaw all approvals and business opportunities.” In addition, the lawsuit criticizes the game “Clothes Forever – Style” for the fact that the App Store “abound with errors” and “get a miserable 3.5 stars out of 5”.
