LOS ANGELES — No Doubt has settled its lawsuit against gaming giant Activision over the use of the band's likenesses in the videogame "Band Hero."
Court records show the Grammy-winning band reached a settlement Monday. The band sued over a feature in the game that allowed players to perform other artists' songs using the likenesses of frontwoman Gwen Stefani and other band members.
Activision Publishing Inc. 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 Oct. 15.
The band's 2009 lawsuit claimed the game turned it "into a virtual karaoke circus act."
The band's attorney, Bert Deixler, declined comment and an attorney for Activision did not return a phone message.
