No Doubt Settles Video Game Lawsuit

LOS ANGELES (October 3, 2012)--No Doubt has settled its lawsuit against Activision over the use of the band's likenesses in the video game "Band Hero."

Court records show the Grammy-winning band reached a settlement Monday after it sued over a feature in the game that allowed players to perform other artists' songs using the likenesses of front woman Gwen Stefani and other band members.

Activision Publishing Inc. denied all wrongdoing.

A judge ruled earlier this year that No Doubt could argue fraud, violation of publicity rights and breach of contract claims at a trial scheduled Oct. 15.

The band's 2009 lawsuit claimed the game turned it "into a virtual karaoke circus act."

The band's attorney, Bert Deixler, declined comment and an attorney for Activision did not return a phone message.
