Lindsay Lohan loses lawsuit

Yes, the same Lindsay Lohan who was in "Mean Girls" and has repeatedly had run-ins with the law.

The New York court said the depictions deserved First Amendment protection.

Lohan's lawsuit was dismissed along with former Mob Wives star Karen Gravano who, like Lohan, sued GTA for a character's likeness to her.

A NY state appeals court ruled against the actress Thursday, stating the defendants never referred to or used Lohan's name, and never used a photograph of her.

The lawsuit that Lindsay Lohan filed against Take-Two Interactive, publisher of the popular Grand Theft Auto games, has officially crashed and burned harder than Michael De Santa ever did.

New York court tosses Lindsay Lohan's Grand Theft Auto V lawsuit was posted in Entertainment of TheNews International - on September 02, 2016 and was last updated on September 02, 2016. Take-Two has called the claims don't have merit, and last month, a judge threw out the plaintiffs' demands for statutory damages and attorneys' fees in the case.

Lindsay and Karen both were arguing that the game's creators, Take-Two Interactive Software, misappropriated their likenesses for the goal of promoting and selling more copies of the game. And since that claim was dismissed, there was no foundation remaining for this one.

Lohan's lawyers had focused on the use of two images in particular. In the fifth installment of GTA, the character is under a constant siege of paparazzi from which players can save her and potentially take her home (scatter my ashes in the ocean please).

Released in 2013 Grand Theft Auto V made over $650 million in global first day sales and has sold more than 65 million units worldwide, according to the company's 2016 annual report.

Apparently, Lohan believed that her peace sign waving hand and a similar photo was a dead giveaway that the promotional image used her likeness.

The lawsuit may be a minor setback, but things are looking up for Lohan.

" One picture of me can sell for $ 6 digit, I'm so well known", said the person, whose only correct conclusion is that it is not Lindsay Lohan or Kate Upton nor Lacy Jones, but rather the result of multiple influences to which they belong.

The court ruled that the character's likeness to Lohan falls under the safe umbrella of fiction or satire, and because the image used in advertisements wasn't directly stated as a portrait of Lohan, it was legal as a fictional avatar.
