No Doubt settles video game suit
No Doubt have settled its lawsuit against gaming giant Activision over the use of the band's likenesses in the video game Band Hero.
The Grammy-winning band reached a settlement on Monday, court papers showed.
No Doubt sued over a feature in the game that allowed players to perform other artists' songs using the likenesses of singer Gwen Stefani and other band members.
Activision Publishing had 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 for October 15.
The band's 2009 lawsuit claimed the game turned it "into a virtual karaoke circus act".
