Sony Suing Jerry Lambert (Kevin Butler)

I guess it's fine when Apple sues Samsung for having curves on their phones and gets awarded 1 billion. But Sony sues the guy most people identify as "the Playstation guy" for doing A Wii commercial and people cry foul? Awesome.

I wonder what will happen to the Kevin Butler costume pre-order DLC for LBP Karting.

Can't really comment on anything without knowing what kind of contract they had. He didn't actually play Kevin Butler in that Wii commercial, right?

Nope. Guess he's NOT allowed to advertise anything from rival gaming companies.

The video seems to be pulled from everywhere on the internet but it's still up here for anyone interested:

It's pretty clear that he isn't playing Kevin Butler in it.

But in seriousness, if Apple could win its BS lawsuit against Samsung and get a billion dollars, I think Jerry is screwed.

We know that. It appears he's NOT allowed to advertise products from any other gaming company besides Sony.

He is in a Tire commercial, and is not seen playing the Wii.
This should not violate a non-compete contract.

He's the president of the advertising company so he's still in trouble regardless.
