Basketball, LeBron James, and Life: LeBron James' Tattoo Artist Suing NBA2K For Using His Tattoc Designs Without Permission @balleralert SHO DER EVELAND LeBron James’ Tattoo Artist Suing NBA2K For Using His Tattoo Designs Without Permission– blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Famed tattoo artist, James Hayden, who is best known for inking the likes of TristanThompson, DannyGreen, KyrieIrving and LeBronJames, is suing the company behind a video game for stealing his work. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a lawsuit obtained by TMZ, Hayden is accusing the company behind the popular basketball game, NBA2K17, for using his artwork without his permission. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The game is best known for its lifelike features and commentary. The game displays the life-like characteristics of the players, from their moves and their favorite sayings, all the way down to their facial features and tattoos. However, Hayden says the game did not ask to feature The King’s “Gloria” tattoo or his “Lion Design,” as he says he owns the rights to the designs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the suit, Hayden lets it be known that he isn’t the first artist, and probably won’t be the last, to sue for their artwork. The suit cites an instance where Mike Tyson’s tattoo artist took “The Hangover 2” cast to court over using Tyson’s design in the movie without proper permission. As a result, Hayden wants 2k Games Inc to pay up for their detail work in NBA2k16, ‘17 and ‘18. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although Hayden didn’t provide an amount, he says he wants a portion of the profits from the game franchise.

Memes, Run, and Connected: An anthropologist proposed a game to the kids in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told them that whoever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he gave them the signal to run they all took each other's hands and ran together, then sat in a circle enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they chose to run as a group when they could have had more fruit individually, one child spoke up and said: "UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?" “One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu – the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can’t exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can’t be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality – Ubuntu- you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole World. ┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈ A person with ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed.” - DesmondTutu theblaquelioness
