So Activision uses a song that's a remake of the Romantics 'What I Like about You' which they then say is too like the original and go to court over it. Well the verdict is in and Activision will just keep rocking.

A federal judge in Detroit on Monday, December 17 denied The Romantics' request to stop the use of the song "What I Like About You" in Activision's popular video game, Guitar Hero Rocks the 80s, ensuring that sales of the game will continue. In making the ruling, Judge Edmunds indicated that to the extent there were any copyright issues, Activision did exactly what the company was supposed to do in developing the product.

Activision is pleased with the ruling and thinks that the case is without merit. Respect for all artists is an important value of the company and Activision has a long history of supporting artists from a range of entertainment fields. The company believes video games represent a growing opportunity for the music industry to reach new audiences and a strong source of potential license revenue for both bands and music publishers.
