OP  3/13/12 9:30:41 AM#1

According to Courthouse News Service, a legal battle has begun between Blizzard Entertainment and former World of Warcraft GM Amanda Lewis. The lawsuit alleges that Lewis submitted her vocal talents in consideration as the voice of the Baby Murloc in WoW. Lewis further alleges that she has received no credit or compensation for her work.

The complaint continues: "The appealing style and original content of Amanda's vocal work was recognized by Blizzard, which used Amanda's voice and an original song she developed to give life and personality to creatures known as baby murlocs. Murlocs are a type of aquatic humanoid creature common in WoW, and baby murlocs are a friendly and appealing version of murlocs that appear in various quests and are available as special player-owned 'pets.'

Read the full lawsuit summary on the Courthouse News Service site.

I am pretty sure she did that on work time so did get paid for it.  Me thinks she is trying to make a quick buck.

Seriously want to see the judges ruling on this. Having a judge say "baby murloc" in a sentence will be too funny.

I would asume she did not do this as a part of her contractual(sp) duties and thus she should at least get recognition. Otherwise she would not have a leg to stand on and no one would be crazt enough to take it to court.


 


It will most likley end in a settlement tho...

I was typing a reply but decided to read the article a bit more first.

 

So pretty much she is trying now to apply for a copyright to a baby murloc voice and song... after the fact.   The "creative content" being based on a 3rd party's IP (Blizzard) ... seriously?

 

Personally when I worked for a certain "big company" I did extra creative work outside the scope of my job duties quite often.   I was never given any direct credit or extra compensation...

 

Beyond that I'm not sure how anyone in their right mind thinks they are going to be granted a copyright on content that is already copy righted by someone else.   aka Murloc's in this content are obviously part of a copyrighted IP...

 

Her trying to gain ownership of such... is copyright infringement .. and that is what she is trying to claim they did?

 

It just looks like someone who is filing a lawsuit hoping for a settlement as opposed to thinking they have an actual case.   This is why the system should be changed so that someone who loses a lawsuit has to pay the legal cost of the side that won.   If they are not capable then the law firm that represented them should be liable for the cost.   Thus people with an actual case can go to court .. knowing their legal fees will be covered without diminishing their settlement and... companies can go to court to defend themselves because it won't cost less to just settle.

 

Or maybe its just that I hate Murlocs... the best part of the one CGI video was when the Undead Warlock(?) incinerated those annoying murlocs behind him.

You are very uninformed. Blizz didn't sue to get dota rights. They sued to prevent Valve from getting sole owner rights of dota. So dota name stays open for use by anyone. The least you can do is actually study up on your facts before you start blaming big coporations.

Not sure why you brought up Dota? I assume your just not educated on that matter, Blizzard are not trying claim ownership of Dota but thats is off topic. 


If this women did this while in work on work time then work (blizzard) own it.

I'm pretty sure that most companies sneak a clause into their employment contracts that makes them the proprietor of all works, both intellectual and physical.

At least it's been that way in my experience.

I am guess when the email came out she voluntarily offered up the sounds she was working on and Blizzard did not sneak up and record her on their own.  Much like they do contest for voices of buses and subways.  People give the rights to their voice over when they voluntarily seek out their product to be used without setting up some form of compensation before offering it.

Will we see later on, the team who created the Celestial Steed sue Blizzard for the same thing? I don't think so.

While she's at it can she add me to a lawsuit for creating a christmas poster for my building's party last year even though I work as a security guard? I want credit for all the people who said, "Hey! Nice poster." And royalties for thoses that paid that would not have come if not for my poster...

 

In other words, get a clue lady!

 

While at your BlIZZARD job, using BLIZZARD equipment to record a voice for a BLIZZARD made character that you got a day's pay for..what in God's name makes you think you'll get paid extra now that you're no longer working for then?

I think that the very least she should get is a listing in the credits for being the voice of the baby Murloc, any more than that seems discreditable.


Creative recognition is a legitimate claim.

Here's to hoping she wins.  I don't like the thought of her contributing in such a big way to the company (by creating an iconic sound that even some non-gamers know) and not be properly compensated by the company.  I'm tired of big businesses taking advantage of talented individuals by taking their ideas/creations and not recognizing (and compensating) said individuals properly for their efforts.




I don't believe anyone can own her voice but herself, and she should be paid appropriately for the use of it.  If they rule that Blizzard Entertainment owns her voice, this will be just another instance of corporations being people (able to own property) and people being property (her voice which is very much a part of her as your voice is to you).
