Activison Seeks To Dismiss Noriega Lawsuit

As you may have heard a while ago, brutal dictator and war criminal Manuel Noriega recently filed a lawsuit against Activison, the publisher of the Call of Duty series, for using his image in their latest game without his permission. While the whole mess is completely ridiculous, as Noriega is a convicted war criminal and murderer who’s reputation could not possibly be any worse, the people at Activision still have to defend themselves and thus have motioned for the lawsuit to be dismissed in a California court of law.

Defending the Call of Duty publisher is Rudy Giuliani, former Mayor of New York and current U.S. lawyer. “What’s astonishing is that Manuel Noriega, a notorious dictator who is in prison for the heinous crimes he committed, is upset about being portrayed as a criminal and enemy of the state in the game Call of Duty. Quite simply, it’s absurd”, said the former mayor. “I’m not interested in giving handouts to a convicted murderer and drug smuggler like Manuel Noriega who is demanding money from Activison and its popular Call of Duty franchise for simply exercising its right to free speech. Noriega’s attack on the rights of Call of Duty comes as no surprise considering he’s a lawless tyrant who trampled over the rights of his own people”.

What do you guys think? Is the former Mayor correct? Let us know on Twitter @APGNation or in the comments!

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
