No Doubt and Activision settle Band Hero suit

Activision and No Doubt have settled out of court over the band’s lawsuit against the publisher.

The dispute began back in 2009 when the band first filed the lawsuit claiming their likenesses were only to be used in Band Hero with their own in-game tracks – as opposed to the game’s entire catalog.

Gamasutra reports the two were set to meet in court later this month, but have instead settled two weeks ahead of their scheduled date.

No information or figures were provided regarding the nature of the settlement as you might expect, but at the very least there's the assurance that we won't have to mention Band Hero anymore going forward.
