Axl Rose had filed a $20 million lawsuit against Activision Blizzard Inc., claiming that he had only agreed to license "Welcome to the Jungle" if the company promised not to feature any ex members of Guns n Roses or their band at the time, Velvet Revolver.
The San Marino Tribune reports that "Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Charles Palmer heard more than two hours of arguments concerning the lawsuit’s contract claims" before dismissing the suit on February 7th.
According to the article, Rose's suit filed in November of 2010 claimed that "Guitar Hero III has generated significantly more than $1 billion for Activision"
The judge preciously threw out parts of the lawsuit because they weren't filed until 3 years after the game was released. Did we mention that Slash is on the cover of the game in question?
