Playstatic user Jack Thompson, a lawyer from Florida who became fairly well known last year during the GTA: San Andreas “scandal”, has requested that the developer of Mortal Komat: Armageddon, Midway Games, “…cease and desist immediately from the distribution of this game…”.
â€śIt has today come to my attention that the newly recently Mortal Kombat: Armageddon contains an unauthorized commercial exploitation of my name, photograph, image, and likeness within the game.â€ť
â€śYou are commanded to cease and desist immediately [emphasis Thompsonâ€™s] from the distribution of this game because of this unauthorized, illegal contentâ€¦â€ť
The above is what Thompson had to say to Midway Games. This all came about after a character of Jack Thompson was made using the character creation tool in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon and was posted online for everyone to create and use in the game. While some people might consider this an honour, Jack doesn’t seem too keen on the idea.
What are your views on Jack Thompson, and how he was a part of the GTA: San Andreas case? Would do you think about him working on getting some controversial games such as Bully (Canis Canem Edit) considered “harmful to minors by law”? Do you think he was right in going about that, or do you love Bully too much to care what he thinks? Let us know in the comments section.
