Heavy metal gods Iron Maiden sue video game maker

Heavy metal’s all-time greats Iron Maiden are suing video game company 3D Realms over the game Ion Maiden, which Maiden describes as an “incredibly blatant” infringement on their intellectual property.

When one reads the description of what 3D is appropriating one can’t help but wonder what the hell 3D was thinking. [Disclaimer: I’m a big Maiden fan and have seen them live countless times. I also own most of their albums and several of their concert t-shirts.]
