[Korea] Online Baseball games sued by retired players

Four baseball game developers and publishers in Korea got sued by thirteen retired baseball players who claimed the companies have been using their names and in-game characters without players’ permission. Those company include 1) the developer of?Ma9 (마구마구: Kor)?AniPark, and 2) the Korean publisher ?CJ Internet and 3) the developer of?Slugger (MLB Dugout Heroes: Eng) Wise Cat, and 4) the Korean publisher Neowiz.

Looks like AniPark and CJ Internet has been aware of this portrait right controversy. During the last June update, they changed names of retired MLB players from full name to first name plus last name initial. The reason behind those changes was the companies don’t have rights to use retired players’ names based on the contract with MLBAD (MLB Advanced Media).
