Electronic Arts sued for copyright infringement of UNLV fight song


Bad news for Electronic Arts today, with word that the composer of the University of Nevada at Las Vegas (UNLV) fight song is suing the publisher for copyright infringement. The suit, which alleges that EA used the song “Win With the Rebels,” asks for $150,000 per violation. That totals to $1,500,000 since the suit claims the song can be heard on 10 EA games.

The games are NCAA Football (2006-2009 editions); NCAA Basketball (2009); NCAA March Madness (2006-2008 editions); and NCAA Baseball (2006 and 2007 editions).

The song can be found here. To my ears, it sounds like every other fight song in existence.
