Modern Warfare 3 makers Activision in legal dispute over Delta Force name

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is to become the center of attention once again however it won't be for the good reasons as Activision face legal proceedings

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 developer Activision is facing legal proceedings from NovaLogic the developer behind the Delta Force series. NovaLogic is seeking an injunction and damages alledging that without permission Activision used a Delta Force logo in CoD: MW3.

 

According to the complaint, lodged in a Californian court, NovaLogic is claiming that Activision repeatedly ignored warnings from the company despite the fact that NovaLogic owns the copyright to the Delta Force name.

It's not just the name NovaLogic has issue with implying that the logo used in the game also bears a very striking resemblance to the logo used in the Delta Force series.

Finally the company believes that Activision illegaly licensed out the name and logo to Turtle Beach and Microsoft costing NovaLogic 'millions of dollars in revenue'.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 became the best-selling Call of Duty title last year when it broke records as the largest entertainment launch in history. Anticipation has now started to build however for the next game in the Call of Duty series, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Features

Building on the dominant success of past Call of Duty franchise offerings, Black Ops 2 will see gamers thrown into a 21st Century Cold War setting, the year 2025 to be precise, with a fleet of cut-throat soldiers tasked with taking down the technologically advanced weapons that have been turned against the western world.

“Pushing the boundaries of what fans have come to expect from the record-setting entertainment franchise, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 propels players into a near future, 21st Century Cold War, where technology and weapons have converged to create a new generation of warfare,” the game’s official website declares.
