Things are looking good for rock band No Doubt. Less so for game publisher Activision.
Last fall, the group sued Activision over a breach of contract. Activision's Guitar Hero allowed players to unlock No Doubt avatars and turn the band into "virtual karaoke players."
As Kotaku previously posted, No Doubt said in a statement last fall that the band "agreed to place avatars containing their name and likeness performing three No Doubt songs" but that Band Hero allows their use in more than 60 other songs, all without the group's knowledge or approval. (No Doubt's "Don't Speak" and "I'm Just A Girl" appear in the console versions of Band Hero, with "Excuse Me Mr." featured in the Nintendo DS version.)
