Proceeds from “Grand Theft Lindsay V” will be used to purchase dignity

Over the Summer actress Lindsay Lohan seemingly gave up her film career to pursue opportunities in the gaming industry. She doesn't write code or do voiceovers, nor does she have any artistic credentials. She does a unique form of 3D modeling. Unlike many in this field she doesn't work on a high end computer work station. Rather, she determines which of her charming photos best resembles GTA's Lacey Jonas.

She brought a lawsuit against developer Rockstar Games and publisher Take-Two Interactive for using her likeness. Her photo compared to the GTA advertising piece has circulated the internet.

Lindsay vs Lacey Lindsay's grueling work in the game industry is taking it's toll and yesterday she asked for a raise in the form of having her legal team claim her likeness was used throughout the game and in advertising materials. She should have stuck with her Hollywood career, since frivolous lawsuits tend to be a poor source of revenue.

Incidentally, the photo of Lindsay in the red bikini has been cropped in most of the GTA comparison photos I've seen. The full view shows her ankle monitor which is a friendly reminder that she's already had some experience with the law... and the law won.
