Helicopter manufacturer claims injury from video game's depiction of their product
As if Electronic Arts doesn't have enough litigation on its plate from rivals, athletes, insurers, and game creators, the video game publishing giant is now involved in a fight with the military-industrial complex.

Lawyers for a manufacturer of military helicopters are threatening to sue a video game producer for the use of the helicopters' likenesses in the video games.  They say that the visual appearance of the helicopters is their intellectual property, and that the use of the likenesses dilutes their rights in the design.  The game company claims that the use is fair use.
