Rockstar Games has won a lawsuit in which a Los Angeles strip club alleged Rockstar had breached their copyright by using their look and style in San Andreas.

Documents obtained by Gamasutra, E.S.S Entertainment - owners of The Play Pen - filed suit against Rockstar in April of last year, claiming the strip club in San Andreas (The Pig Pen) represented trademark infringement due to its similar name, logo and styling.

The judge agreed with Rockstar that using it as inspiration did not qualify as infringement and Rockstar was able to claim a first amendment defence.

Also note that Rockstar announced that controversial school-based game Bully is on schedule for release by the end of the year

Interesting, I didn't know the 'Pig' Pen was a real place. Nice to see R* doing something right for once, anyway.

I hope R* makes a little poster somewhere in GTA4/VCS making fun of how many times they have been to court...

Glad to hear that Bully is coming out at the end of the year. I thought that game was cancelled.

It was getting the "Duke Nukem Forever" treatment.
