Judge dismisses Axl Rose case against Activision
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A judge has dismissed Axl Rose's lawsuit that Activision Blizzard Inc. violated an agreement with him not to feature Slash in a video game.
Court records show a Los Angeles Superior Court judge agreed with Activision attorneys that there was no agreement between Rose and the gaming company to prevent Slash's appearance in "Guitar Hero III."
A judgment in Activision's favor was entered Wednesday.
Rose sued Activision in November 2010 seeking $20 million in damages from the company. He claimed he allowed Activision to use the song "Welcome to the Jungle" in the game on the condition that Slash and his band, Velvet Revolver, not appear in the game.
The suit said Rose has been trying to distance Guns N' Roses from Slash since he left the band in 1996.
