It would seem that a number of top football players are unhappy with their images being used in EA games

I think footballers may not realise that their clubs agree some of these rights but this is going to be interesting to watch. EA make billions from FIFA but this could be a huge challenge to them.

Yeah i'd imagine EA know they have the legal advantage to even dare use these players likenesses but their revenue may take a hit if players demand more money

I could not give a crap less about EA, but I do like seeing them get a bloody nose now and then.
