Call of Duty wins trial for use of unlicensed vehicles
If you look closely at the Call of Duty franchise , it could be assumed that it has all the necessary licenses to portray weapons and military vehicles on the virtual spectrum.

After all, even though these are not combat simulators, it is clear that each installment emphasizes achieving a certain degree of realism

That is why it is surprising to know that Activision does not have a license to portray Humvee military vehicles , so much so that in 2017, it was sued by the owner AM General on the grounds that its commercial rights had been violated and therefore the publisher of the game had made of billions of dollars.

Three years after that lawsuit was filed, a judge ruled, to everyone's surprise, in favor of Activision and Call of Duty , and their reasoning could even be invoked by other developers who want to transfer the Humvees to their games without having a AM license.

For Judge George B. Daniels, Activision's purpose with Call of Duty is to realistically portray armed conflict, which further appeals to the sense of creative freedom with which developers working with the publisher are governed.

"If realism is an artistic goal , then Modern Warfare presence of vehicles used by actual military dogs, without a doubt, this goal" , concluded Daniels .

We are not sure how accurate the judge's logic is, because if you think of other cases such as Gran Turismo , which is a saga that always seeks realism , then the developer Polyphony Digital could well continue to release sequels without having any license assembler, since its fundamental interest is to recreate the driving experience .

We will see if AM General appeals the sentence, because in our opinion it is reasoning that can be fought.
