Edgeliss?

instead of deleting this thread

use it as a discussion for the post by arn

Quote:
In an apparent move to band against Tim Langdell's over aggressive defense of the trademark "EDGE", a number of indie developers have made announcements today that their upcoming games will incorporate the EDGE name.

FEZ becomes EDGE
Sequel to Eliss – EDGELISS
Closure becomes Closure on the EDGE of Reality
LEDGE Dismount from Secret Exit
Edgeward McEdgington
The move seems to be in response to another takedown target of Tim Langdell's which was detailed this week.
Killer Edge Racing from PuzzleKings is the latest game to be targeted by IP hunter Timothy Langdell, who has complained to Apple that the casual title is infringing his Edge trade mark.
Additionally, it appears that Langdell has now applied to register a trade mark for "Killer Edge Racing" in a bid to prevent PuzzleKings from using the name, despite the fact that the game has been around for five years.

your thoughts?

I hope all the devs get together and do all they can to put a stop this nuthead.
