ah man, thats crazy, trademarking common words is a ridiculous concept to me.
Comment by Amrit Randay on January 21, 2014 at 11:59pm
This just boggles my fucking mind. How is this even legal?! Trandmarking the word Candy, and now Saga?! Oh fuck off with this bullshit.

Fucking honestly... I'm sure Stoic can crush this with very little effort, but what a waste of time. King need people who are far less retarded in charge of protecting their IP, the ones they've currently got are chowing down pretty hard on wall candy.

@Selcinorhc: "I'm sure Stoic can crush this with very little effort".

I'm sorry Selcinorhc you're not allowed to say 'crush' either, please answer directly to your King overlords :P

Sometimes I wan to be a cynic and say "oh, it's just a publicity stunt", then I remind myself all I have to be is a realist and say "they are just idiots". This comment was heavily redacted/modified for the purposes of clarity, legibility, and length. Also because there's literally not enough cuss words to encapsulate my emotions.

Actually, I found a video that did express those emotions. Thanks Jon Stewart. http://j.mp/1duuvks

So .... When will we trademark "Epic" "Battle" "Cry" "Axe" and "Factor" But in all seriousness I find it both funny and sad that they feel a need to trademark everyday words like candy and saga.

LOL!

Really, King.Com?! My head did explode just now. Is there no PR-Managment at King.Com? How can someone be so absolutley stupid and arrogant? I am shocked.

Leigh Alexander Gets Fisked

So Leigh Alexander at Gamasutra, Luke Plunkett at Kotaku and Dan Golding (who has written for many places), have written articles on the same day, on the same subject. That's an interesting coincidence. It is also interesting that Chris Plante over at Polygon also had a very similar article, covering the same issues, on the same day though it was written more as a summary of the past week. Now there are time zones to consider but these were all published within 24…
