    Duke Nukem 3D composer Bobby Prince files lawsuit against Randy Pitchford, Gearbox and Valve
    Bobby Prince claims his music was used in Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour without permission.

    Composer Bobby Prince, who wrote music for Doom, Doom 2, Wolfenstein 3D and Duke Nukem 3D, has filed a lawsuit against Gearbox Software, the company’s chief executive Randy Pitchford, and Valve, claiming that his music was used in 2016 shooter Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour without his permission, and without him receiving compensation.

    Bobby’s Wikipedia entry notes the following:

    Prince is a lawyer who passed the bar in 1980.

    …so I’m gonna guess he may have a better idea than the average composer of whether he’s got a case or not. Perhaps not the best person to tangle with in court.
