Take-Two wins NBA 2K lawsuit involving LeBron James' tattoos

A four year battle ends

Back in 2016, Solid Oak Sketches claimed to own copyrights to tattoo designs featured on the bodies of NBA stars LeBron James, Kenyon Martin and Eric Bledsoe, who all appear in the NBA 2K series. Solid Oak Sketches claimed Take-Two Interactive use unauthorized reproductions of those tattoo designs in their games.

In a legal battle that took four years, Take-Two has just now come out on top. While the lawsuit took a long time, the end result is a decisive victory for Take-Two, which could very well dictate how similar lawsuits go when it comes to digital representations of tattoos. It'll be interesting to see what happens to other pending lawsuits in this area as we move forward.
