Sony suing kevin butler.

13 replies 597 views Edited Oct 7, 2012

Just found this interesting article on kotaku. I'm a huge KB fan, and I know a lot of people on here are too. So what do you guys think of this? http://kotaku.com/5949607/sony-is-suing-kevin-butler

We're not sure what the actual lawsuit is yet, based on the court filing. If they're suing due to a non-compete clause that was broken, then more power to Sony. If they're suing because they think they own Lambert's likenesses, they're screwed.

However, if they're suing because their reputation is damaged by that video (look at all of the outpour of "Kevin Butler betrayed Sony"), this will be an interesting case.

Sony is having some jealousy issues that they need to talk about. I guess they think that they own ButlerSmiley Indifferent

Yea, I'm hoping that this is because he legally violated his contract or something like that because, as you said, if they are suing him because they think they own the guy, then they are screwed. That and it makes them look really bad, and I prefer it when Sony doesn't look stupid. I like them.

I don't care either, but I want to see what Sony's actually trying to do before I judge what they're trying to do.

If he breached contract, I can't say it's their fault for going at them for it. You'd think that since it involves a Wii, he'd've gone to his lawyer if this were a contract issue.

Actually, I do not. I'm just going by what we know right now, along with a few things that I've picked up on over the years. Thank you for the compliment though! lol
