EA settles in NCAA player lawsuit

EA settles in NCAA player lawsuit

In 2011, Electronic Arts joked that losing the lawsuit regarding player likenesses in NCAA Football games would be like getting hit by a giant meteoroid. This week, it appears that the meteoroid has landed.

The original suit claimed that EA had used Ryan Hart's likeness in NCAA Football without his permission. EA won the original suit, but Hart filed an appeal. A later class action claimed that EA and the NCAA colluded to have players sign away their rights. As legal pressure mounted, the NCAA was forced to terminate its license with EA. The publisher announced the cancellation of next year's College Football game as well, as it reconsiders the future of the franchise.
