EA Outraged Over South Park Episode

BY Andrew Miesner / March 23, 2010

It has been reported that Electronic Arts, an international developer, marketer, publisher and distributor of video games is possibly looking into legal actions after Tiger Woods was featured in an episode of South Park last week. The episode brought in 3.7 million views alone in the United States. The South Park episode features Cartman and Kenny playing an Xbox 360 game of Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren beating each other up, and then crashing Wood’s car.

Electronic Arts, which pledged its support for Woods in January, is now considering legal action on grounds of copyright infringement.


An unidentified source added:


While I personally found the episode quite funny, there are definitely a few copyright infringements in there that I’m sure will be dealt with accordingly.


Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 will be released on Wii, PS3, 360 and iPhone on June 8.
