They are suing because of the Kevin Butler-likeness being used to play a Wii, a competitor of Sony.

So Sony is making a big deal out of something that would have probably passed over pretty much everyone's heads if Sony hadn't made a big deal out of it.

Well played Sony.

I'm guessing Sony doesn't have anything more profitable to do.

If there was a contract involved, im sure it would be mentioned in the official complaint. We can also tell from the complaint That Sony is suing Wildcat and Bridgestone, whereas any contract would have been with Jerry Lambert. They can't sue 2 other entities for breaking a contract signed by a third one.


Non-compete clauses are illegal in California unless the party holds a ownership interest or trade secrets. Jerry Lambert certainly doesn't hold majority shares in Sony and I doubt as an actor he was told any trade secrets. Sony probably wanted to go after him for competing, but their California lawyers told them they couldn't, so this was the next best thing.
