Also, here's a bit where King.com (aka Candy Crush Saga developer) is suing a new desktop tactical role playing game called The Banner Saga over the use of the term "Saga" common to both games (and many other King.com products like Papa Pear Saga, etc).

Anybody would think they invented the wheel with candy crush, but in fact they just ripped off the idea off some poor sole, just like all there games they release. Wow corporations can be sooooo greedy!!
Hope you don't try to re-name the Candy Canes I eat when it's Christmas time, Santa won't be happy!

I like candy crush, but it is not fair to reserve the word candy.
