    Video: Courtney Love to Sue Activision Over Kurt Cobain Character

    Sponsored Links
    Guitar Hero 5 has featured a posthumous Kurt Cobain on their list of characters that are in the game, and apparently not only are other people not happy about it... Courtney Love isn't either, so she is suing Activision.

    To quote: In a Twitter tirade for the ages, the former Hole frontwoman announced plans to sue Guitar Hero 5 publisher Activision over the way her late husband was represented in the game, reports [Register or Login to view links].

    "For the record this Guitar Hero [expletive] is breach of contract on a Bullys part and there will be a proper addressing of this and retraction," she posted on her [Register or Login to view links] account. "WE are going to sue the [expletive] out of Activision we being the Trust the Estate the LLC the various LLCs Cobain Enterprises."





    Cobain appears as one of five exclusive in-game artists in Guitar Hero 5, joining the likes of Carlos Santana and Johnny Cash as playable characters.

    In particular, Love is incensed over the look of Cobain's avatar, which can be used by gamers to play non-Nirvana songs with Cobain lip-synching along. Love insisted she "never signed off on the avatar, let alone this [expletive] feature" and that "there's been four breaches of a very strict contract."

    However, according to Activision vice president Tim Riley, working with Love was smooth and easy.

    "Courtney supplied us with photos and videos," he told The Guardian. "She picked the wardrobe and hairstyle, which turned out to be the 'Teen Spirit' look, then we went back and forth over changes - some subtle, some not so subtle." But Love simply doesn't agree.

    She just wants attention since that's the only way she is know is through Kurt. Money, money, money. If she was smart she would have invested on royalties for every game sold featuring him.

    exactly, not to mention she's the one who killed him herself. many people have their theories, but i believe she didn't kill him herself, but hired someone to do the job. kurt was planning a divource, she wouldn't have his cash no more, thus murder happened.

    she shouldn't be free, she should be locked up.

    UPDATE: Looks like Activision responded to Love. They have Stated that she did in fact sign off on his likeness being used as a playable character and state they have the paper work to prove this.

    looks like she is up the creek.
