I'm guessing you're unfamiliar with the Tetris Company and their whole "block dropping games with 'tris' in the name" deal? You might want to rename it to something without "tris" in the name. Well, unless you want them to find you.

The only products legally allowed to use "Tetris" and "tris" in the names.
