Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine is set to sue computer game manufacturers Activision over his portrayal in 'Band Hero'.

According to Reuters, the singer agreed that the game could feature his band's hit single 'She Will Be Loved' and even performed the track for the manufacturers so they could motion capture his likeness.

Levine is unhappy however as the game not only allows users to use his avatar to perform his band's hit, but also use his voice to sing over 60 other songs and his avatar to sing in a variety of voices, including those of female artists.

The singer has said had he known this, he would not have agreed as he does not want his voice used to sing songs that "would not have been chosen by him for recordings or performances". The suit also alleges that other artists were paid a higher fee than Levine received to participate in the game.

The singer has cited grounds of fraudulent inducement, breach of contract, violation of the common-law right of publicity, and unfair business acts or practices for the lawsuit and is seeking unspecified damages.
