Red Cross condemns misuse of emblem in videogames

`The British Red Cross has told GamesIndustry.biz that it hopes to work with developers to prevent the “illegal and detrimental” misuse of the red cross emblem in videogames.

“It is important for videogame manufacturers not to use the emblem in their games, including for matters related to its humanitarian purpose, such as first aid or general medical care,” said Michael Meyer, head of international law for the British Red Cross.

“The use of the emblem in videogames is both illegal and detrimental to the special protective value of the emblem.”‘
