EA cover curse

On 28th November 2005, Pernell Harris sues Electronic Arts over the NFL Superstar mode in Madden NFL 06. He claims to have met with the company in 2003 to discuss his game Heart of a Champion, in which players guide an athlete from high school to professional football. He accuses EA of breaching an "implied in fact contract" by using those features without compensation and violation of a confidentiality agreement.
