A $40 million settlement has been proposed in the case between current and former NCAA student-athletes and video game makers who allegedly used their likenesses without consent, according to Steve Berkowitz of USA Today.

The settlement would be paid by Electronic Arts and the Collegiate Licensing Corporation, a trademark marketing firm used by many of the NCAA's highest profile schools, to players who appeared in the games since 2003, including those who were placed on vintage rosters available in the game, and those who currently retain NCAA eligibility.

The settlement is currently under review from judge Claudia Wilkens, and is separate from a lawsuit against the NCAA led by former UCLA player Ed O'Bannon.
