Another day, another lawsuit in gaming. No, it is not Fortnite. This time around, WWE wrestler Booker T is suing Activision other claims that Black Ops 4 character, Prophet is based on his likeness. In a lengthy statement posted online, his representation, Micah Dortch of Potts Law Firm has said:
“Prophet” is too similar to the “G.I. Bro” comic book action hero character he created based on one of his early pro wrestling personas."
Micah Dortch goes on to say:
"Booker T. has devoted a significant amount of time and money creating and organically growing his G.I. Bro character"
"That entrepreneurial investment should not be erased by such a blatant act of copyright infringement by a gaming juggernaut.”
