OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -Former Nebraska quarterback Sam Keller is suing EA Sports and the NCAA, saying the video-game maker wrongly uses the names and likenesses of college athletes in its products and that the NCAA sanctions the practice.
Keller's lawsuit was filed Tuesday in federal court in San Francisco as a class-action, meaning he also sued on behalf of all college athletes depicted in EA's games.
Keller lawyer Rob Carey contends EA Sports profits from using the names and likenesses of players.
NCAA bylaws prohibit the use of the names and likenesses of athletes for commercial purposes.
The lawsuit would bar EA from using the names and likenesses of players and seeks undetermined pay for athletes who have been portrayed in the games.
