A lawsuit filed against Capcom is saying the company recently violated copyright infringement laws. According to a court filing, photographer Judy Juracek is suing Capcom for $12 million because the organization used several of her images without her permission in games like Resident Evil and Devil May Cry.
In her initial complaint, Juracek accused Capcom of using unauthorized photos from her copyrighted book, Surfaces. She also said that the company used at least 80 of her photos without “contacting her directly about licensing.” In her most claim, Juracek said the Resident Evil 4 logo uses “infringed assets.”
In response to these allegations, a Capcom representative said “the company is ‘aware of the lawsuit’ and has ‘no further comment.'”
The initial complaint was filed with a Connecticut district court on June 4th, 2021.
