Re: Real names in a football game

Depends on the jurisdiction.  If you use football player names in a
football game, you'll most likely get sued (because commercial game
developers have to pay $$$ to get licenses and the football
organizations don't want to lose that income).

It *might* be possible to get a license for free software, though,
especially in countries where football is heavily subsidized.
