As set forth by Selena, she had never given any permission for any game makers to exploit her likeness for their products.

The lawsuit stated that in regard to Selena’s rights, defendants had neither asked for her permission nor notified Selena about their usage of her likeness. Moreover, even if they had asked, she would have never approved of her likeness is to be used for such an unsavory practice promoted by the defendants. The fact that they had been using celebrities' images as a way to lure people into in-game purchases could never be in line with Selena’s mentality.

For that reason, she is suing the Guangzhou Feidong Software Technology Co.,.- the game seller together with MutantBox Interactive Limited - the copyright owner. Obviously, Selena is a public figure who has a huge impact on the youth. The suit added that those game makers’ practice was “an egregious violation of Selena’s rights, which we are going to litigate vigorously to vindicate.”
