Ex-Lara Croft Model Gets the Sticker

Core wins UK suit against Lara Croft layout in Playboy.

A London high court judge ordered that stickers be placed over the Tomb Raider name on the cover of 20,000 issues of the August edition of Playboy in the UK, reports the Associated Press. The injunction was brought up by Tomb Raider developer, Core Design Ltd., after Nell McAndrew, one of a series of models used to promote Lara in the flesh posed for a nude layout in the magazine. George Hamer, an attorney for Core Design Ltd. told High Court Judge Humphrey Lloyd that Lara's "squeaky-clean image" would be "tarnished for all time."
