Capcom Facing Lawsuit For Using Designer’s Work Without Consent on Several Titles

Capcom is facing more allegations of using other people’s ideas for several of their titles in a new lawsuit. RelyOnHorror reports that designer and photographer Judy A. Juracek has filed a suit against Capcom, claiming that the developer used imagery from her 1996 book and CD combo ‘Surfaces: Visual Research for Artists, Architects, and Designers‘ for several Resident Evil titles without her permission.

Juracek has pointed out and made documentation of at least 80 photographs from the book that have allegedly been used as references in Capcom games, including Devil May Cry and Resident Evil 4. Juracek has gone so far as to reference the data leak that occurred last year with Capcom to support her claim, saying that filenames for at least one of the images from the Capcom hack are the same filenames as those used on the book’s CD.

Juracek is seeking up to $12 million in damages, along with damages for “false copyright management and removal of copyright management”, which would run between $2,500 to $25,000 for each image.

Capcom has stated that they have no comment at this time.

Earlier this year, director Richard Raaphorst spoke out on social media, saying that Capcom lifted his creature designs from 2013’s Frankenstein’s Army for Resident Evil Village without permission. Capcom has so far not responded to those allegations, either.

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
