Apparently shareholders of the company that makes Grand Theft Auto are getting a class action lawsuit together. The reason for suing? The shares plummeted in value after news broke on the ‘Hot Coffee’ game mod that lets you have sex within the game, causing large family companies to ban the game.
Given they were trying to make money off a company that makes a game in which beating a prostitute up with a baseball bat after sleeping with her in your car is an integeral part of the game play then I think the phrase ‘caveat emptor’ applies here. Or maybe we should all get in on this, and sue any company with shares whenever the value goes down – then everyone’s a winner!
