Design's ongoing battle against the character
defacement of Lara Croft has finally resulted
in success following the imminent closure of a
number of web sites propagating 3D nude rendering
software which enables players to engage a disrobed
aristocratic Lara Croft through her various adventures.
Jeremy Heathsmith, who masterminded the campaign
to cease and desist web sites displaying nude
images of it's Tomb Raider character Lara Croft,
said the company would continue to monitor the
trend and take immediate action where appropriate.
"If we come across particularly disturbing renderings
of our character we will act on it."
Playstation console manufacturer Sony Corp said
it would consider legal action against the makers
of Bleem, a PC based Playstation emulator which
has spawned across the internet at an alarming
rate. David Herpolsheimer, one of three Californian
partners who developed the Playstation emulator
said he was convinced that Bleem was safe from
legal action because the application did not contain
any Sony code.
