Legal Troubles[edit | edit source]

On an interesting side note: In 2003 (3 years after the game was released) SEGA was sued by Lady Miss Kier, the lead singer of the group Deee-Lite, for "likeness rights" to the Ulala character. She said that at one point SEGA offered her money to use her music and likeness for the game but she declined. During the trial, SEGA were able to prove that not only had they designed Ulala before getting in contact with Lady Miss Kier, but also that the creators of Space Channel 5 had never even heard of her as it was the marketing team that requested Lady Miss Kier's 'likeness' and music to advertise the game. The jury ruled in favour of SEGA and Lady Miss Kier was forced to pay their legal fees.
