She wasn't any good as Lara. I wouldn't call her fat, chubby yes, but not fat, though having seen the previous argument that occured by your comment I think I agree with you.

Eeew, it's pink, kill it!

You should totally get money out of this by suing them, not to mention that it must be some TRF bitch behind that ...!

How would FE go about doing that? Sure, the image is theirs, but the inspiration (Lara Croft) isn't. If anything, the person selling those covers should watch out for SquEnix, seeing as they're actually using the Tomb Raider name. I'm no corporate lawyer, but I always thought that sort of stuff required clearance from the holder of the IP, especially when money is being made from it.

If that enterprise isn't officially endorsed, and if FearEffect wants to put a stop to their image being used, letting SquEnix know about it is probably the best thing to do.

But SquareEnix is a large company with many things to do, what are the chances that they would actually pay attention, even to such an important matter and a devoted fan?

They should care about it, but maybe they wouldn't (although I can't think why considering money is being made on a name they own). The only way to find out for sure would be to get in touch with them.

I guess, but, being multinational (and Japanese ! ) I don't think they'd care thaaat much if an idiot is using one of their products to make money, after all it's not like they'd be at any loss. But if they wanna be all bitchy and boss they SHOULD sue that irrelevant person, it would be SOOO fun to make him pay while he was aiming at being paid *sadistic laugh* .

I guess it's all up to FearEffect to decide.

Well 18 days to the release of Tomb Raider. Waiting for the release for the game wasn't bothering me, but now that I've pre ordered the game, I really want it to be the 5th. I really want to play this game.

It's true that, in this instance, the money actually being made is most likely completely negligible to someone like SquEnix. But it's the principle, and companies like acting on principle, it makes them feel like they're being deservedly righteous.

Apple have practically made a career out of it
