Ubisoft To Sue The Black Eyed Peas' Management

Will they a-pea-l?

Usually we find bands suing videogame companies but this time the roles have been reversed as Ubisoft has launched legal action against The Black Eyed Peas.

In June 2011 Ubisoft entered into an agreement to use the Peas’ likeness and songs in video games for both consoles and mobile devices.

They have since launched The Black Eyed Peas Experience for PS3 and Xbox 360 and had submitted material for an iOS game for approval to BEP Music, the company that holds the trademark for the group.

Ubisoft alleged that the company has repeatedly ignored attempts to contact them regarding the iOS game and has now launched legal action, claiming damages in excess of $1 million. Ubisoft say they have already spent 181,000 Euros (approximately $233,000) in developing the IOS game.

We asked Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas to comment* and she replied, “My hump, my hump, my hump, my hump. My hump, my hump, my hump, my hump, my hump, my hump. My lovely lady lumps (lumps).”

* By that we mean we loaded “My Humps” on YouTube.

    How did such a group even get a game?

      Like it or not, they are relatively popular.

      Just not with Ubi.

    Oh, there’s so much opportunity for a run of really awful Black Eyed Peas song puns in the comments.

    I, of course, can’t join in because I don’t know any of the group’s songs after Elefunk on account of them becoming a hateful bunch of ear-terrorists.

    Hey mama, the way u make me feel, hands up missing you like that, shut up don’t lie don’t phunk with my heart. I gotta feeling just can’t get enough, missing you, where is the love. Bringing it back, let’s get it started, they don’t want music, meet me halfway, do it like this, pump it, smells like funk. Bridging the gaps, don’t stop the party, just can’t get enough. Go go, be free say goodbye, fly away.
