Man Sues Rockstar Saying GTA:SA Is Based On His Life

samzenpus posted more than 3 years ago | from the a-life-full-of-missions dept.

The Courts 124

dotarray writes "From the article: 'Rockstar Games are no strangers to legal action, but it doesn't come stranger than this. An American model, Michael Washington (known as "Shagg") is suing the publisher — as well as parent company Take Two Interactive — because they based Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on his life.'" It's a good thing Washington never learned the infinite ammo cheat.

Compensating? (4, Funny)

RogueyWon (735973) | more than 3 years ago | (#34501112)

You know, judging by the nickname he chose and the general air of machismo he tries to project, I can't help but feel he's trying to compensate for something.

At a guess, he possibly never managed to unlock the real life version of "hot coffee".

Trashy comments are one thing. Trashy mods are something else. So much for Slashdot management having any class.

Before setting fire to the man, let's see a picture of Washington.
You don't have a picture or other documentation to show? Then how can you meaningfully comment?

Pollardito (781263) | more than 3 years ago | (#34506150)

He's a male model that no one has ever heard of. I'm sure he's doing this to get the publicity that can get him out of the business of selling hot coffee (or "hot coffee")

Law and Order Disclaimer (1)

omnibit (1737004) | more than 3 years ago | (#34501208)

Didn't he see the frame that briefly flashes up before starting the game?

"The following story is fictional and does not depict any actual person or event. Any similarities to actual people, places or events is purely coincidental." /facetiousness

Not quite a coincidence, perhaps... (2)

mark-t (151149) | more than 3 years ago | (#34501936)

FTA

Back in the day, ya see, Shagg met up with Rockstar developers to answer questions on "his street life including how the teen-agers in his gang rode around on bicycles." At the conclusion of the interview, he was told that if the devs chose to include him in the game, they'd let him know.

They never called - and Shagg didn't think any more of it. Fast forward nearly six years, and Shagg's nephew told his uncle about this great video game he'd been playing. You can imagine that Uncle Shagg was more than a little surprised when he saw GTA: San Andreas, featuring a character who looked like him, and acted like him, too.

As nuts as the initial claim sounds, if the guy actually met up with them before they made the game, interviewed with him, and then didn't credit him appropriately, even if only on verbal agreement, there could be some legal obligation on the part of the company.

Re:Not quite a coincidence, perhaps... (2)

mr_mischief (456295) | more than 3 years ago | (#34502198)

Actually, later in the article it says they even went so far as to credit him along with a bunch of others as "talent". Yet they didn't pay him.

I'm guessing he recalls the meeting and fails to recall the waiver of likeness rights he signed during said meeting. That, or he signed something that flat-out said that they were doing research among multiple people, none of whom would be compensated beyond a credit, and that the result would take lifelike tidbits from multiple people to inspire one fictional character's traits.

And what if there was no waiver? Those things exist for a reason, and you're well illustrating the proper use, but their counter argument seems to be along the lines of...

The other, bigger, part suggests that Rockstar based the in-game personalities on a collection of caricatures and stereotypes – Boys ‘n the Hood-style – rather than anything, or anyone specific.

It is possible that the design team was confident that the generalization defense would be sufficient and that they wouldn't require any actual paperwork.

The most dangerous man alive (4, Funny)

Sonny Yatsen (603655) | more than 3 years ago | (#34501224)

If GTA: SA is based on his life, then he must be the most dangerous man alive. Not only must he have committed thousands of murders, assault and batteries, vehicular homicide, and grand larceny, he must also have infiltrated Area 51 and stole military aircraft and vehicles. The man must be a greater threat than Al Qaeda and American Idol put together.

Re:The most dangerous man alive (1, Informative)

Magada (741361) | more than 3 years ago | (#34502654)

Not that it is ever a good idea to grease the chambers of your revolver unless it's a ball-and-cap jobbie, which Revolver Ocelot's Colt Single Action Army definitely isn't.

You'll find that if you do that, the spent cases may not fall neatly out when you break out the cilinder, but rather stick in there (the burnt powder is blown back "up" the chambers somewhat, increasing the viscosity of whatever you've used to lube it up) and require some fiddling to get out. Needless to say, fiddling under enemy fire is a BAD THING (tm).

thousandinone (918319) | more than 3 years ago | (#34501990)

Murder and car theft, sure, but if memory serves, in San Andreas CJ doesn't push drugs at any point. He actively works to take out drug dealers in several missions, in fact.

Some of his fellow gang members seem to have a penchant for ganja, but when CJ is offered some he always declines.

Re:Haha, it won't hold up. (1)

imakemusic (1164993) | more than 3 years ago | (#34503060)

Yes, when it comes to drugs, CJ is a fine upstanding citizen. At one point in the game he even goes to a crack house and beats up the occupants with a baseball bat.

Re:Haha, it won't hold up. (1)

thousandinone (918319) | more than 3 years ago | (#34503448)

Beating up drug users is a drug crime now? So is beating up a rapist a sex crime? How about beating up an embezzler, is that white collar crime?

A separate crime with the caveat '... to a drug user' is about as valid as a separate patent with the caveat '... on the internet' or '... on a computer.'

Is it a crime? Sure. But he's certainly not pushing drugs, which was my point :P

Off the record, while I of course would never take part in such an assault myself, if I were to witness a bunch of drug dealers/users getting the crap beat out of them, I have a feeling I'd forget all the details by the time the police questioned me.

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#34501978)

FTA, it sounds like he is suing because they used his likeness and not really claiming it's based on his life. I haven't read the actual court papers. He did meet with Rockstar games and without seeing a actual picture of him, it's hard to say weather or not Rockstar did use his likeness. Now as far as suing for 250 Million, that's just stupid, but that is American. Of course he might win, if someone can sue a automotive company because the manually didn't say you must drive while cruise control is on, and win, then why not this guy. I will clarify that I am in no way siding with this guy and I think all such lawsuits are a waste of the courts time and money.

Re:suing for likeness (1)

mr_mischief (456295) | more than 3 years ago | (#34502410)

You always sue, if you have a good case, for more than you actually think you'll get. You even put it at more than you deserve, if there is such a number (of course for wrongful death and such it's hard to say there's a fixed number, but for this there is). It's called negotiation. Suing for 25% leaves him room to settle at 5% with no actual trial if Rockstar and Take Two decide that's a better way to spend their money than on fighting the case.

IANAL, this isn't legal advice, yadda yadda, consult an actual legal authority with specific knowledge of your case and the applicable laws, yadda yadda, I'm not responsible if you ignore this disclaimer, yadda blah blah, suing people is only supposed to make you whole and not to make you undeservedly rich, blabbity blabbity yabba dabba do.

Should be easy to prove too if I submit my memory card in as evidence where it clearly states that he's killed however many thousand pedestrians and gangsters.

Surprised he's suing too, cause last I checked when I was done with the game he was a billionaire due to big bets at at the OTB and the ability to restore the previous game whenever those big bets lost.

Involved bicycling on the freeway for hours and training to jump on your bicycle 20 feet up in the air. Because thinking back that's probably at least 30% of my GTA:SA play time.

I spend it messing around and causing havoc with the most fun vehicles.

I have all kinds of fun toys at the desert airbase: A sportbike, a monster truck, an amphibious helicopter (most versatile vehicle in the game), and IIRC I jammed a Harrier in there, plus the usual assortment of randomly-respawning aircraft. The common mountain bike is a great vehicle for stunts too.

MC Hawking, infamous gangster scientist nerdcore hip hop star, has already laid claim to the "GTA was written about me" idea. And did it ten years ago in "GTA3" on "A Brief History of Rhyme: MC Hawking's Greatest Hits"
