News Comments > "Assassin" Trademarked
12. Re: Oct 25, 2009, 17:09 Wolfen
 
No they can't. Read that blurb more carefully.

Drr. Yeah. If they go for that lock on the trademark then yes. It all depends obviously how the trademark is classified in the end. Either way, its silly to think of trademarking as such a horrid thing.

Look at it this way. You start a game company. Make a game called "Lactating Titty Wipers" and its a huge phenomenal success. Next thing you see is an iTunes App store filled with "Lactating Titty Wipers" games. None of which are yours and none of which are any good. So now your getting a bad name for your game, people are now cashing in on your games name as well. Overall its hurting your business. That's what these trademarks really help with that I have personally seen. And of course there is probably much more to it beyond that. And of course trademarking doesn't ensure the product will be successful lol.

They cant stop some one from using "Born To Kill: Assassin" or using the word Assassin in a game.

In fact Kxmodes post makes a ton of sense. Its a really good example. Assassin may fall into that category of being far to common.

Edit: We posted same time hehe. So yeah, im not sure where I stand on trademarking with or with out product.

Its not that they own the word. Its more like they own the word for a specific field. In this case they get to use it for Entertainment services namely providing an online computer game for others over global and local area networks.

So anyone making an MMO or Multiplayer game in general cant use "Assassin". Movies can still use it, single player games can still use it, television shows can still use it. You can still say it. =)

Dont forget that also trademarks and copyrights do have expirations. So its more like leasing or renting the rights to a word, number or symbol.

Also heres an interesting bit. Im guessing this will apply to this word.

"Is it possible to federally register a mark made up of common or ordinary words?

Yes, if the combination of the words is distinctive. But even if the entire mark is judged to lack sufficient distinctiveness, it can be placed on a list called the supplemental register whereas marks that are considered distinctive (either inherently or because they have become well known) are placed on a list called the principal register. Marks on the supplemental register receive far less protection than do those on the principal register. The benefits granted by each type of registration are discussed in more detail in the next question."

Ahh yes, and the lease (as i like to call it now heh) is for 10 years. =)

Oh yeah, and yes Velvet Assassin would be safe. Its two words and its distinctive which they most definitely already trademarked / copyrighted.

This really shouldnt be a surprise to any of us. Remember the fuss over one guy saying there is no ES in the future and then they came back and said that the statement was pretty much mistaken in meaning and confirmed that eventually they would have another ES?

Anyhow, either way the ES games and FO3 were all pretty good in scope / scale. I spent countless hours in Oblivion and even though I had bought Shivering Isles I didnt play it. I had my fill at that point haha.

Im going to bet they continue to use the same engine but improve upon it just as they did with Fallout 3. The engine isnt bad.

It makes tracks and places those colored things to the music. Every song is pretty much its own level for the game. The ship in the middle is you obviously and you (depending on the difficulty level and game mode you selected) attempt to dodge or collect the colored blocks.

As long as new music is made, you will always have new tracks to play. Its actually quite fun for a while at first and I though I dont play it as often it is quite easy to go play again and kill a good couple of hours.

Yeah this game is pretty sick. I think my only real complaint are the boss fights. They get repetitive. The Eve one really pisses me off. I thought I was done. But nope. Here lets do it aaaaaallll over again, but this time were going to throw in a bunch of henchmen. The first time was hard enough for me with them. Ugh. I suck at playing console style games though, so I typically know that what ever is hard for me, is normal for others haha.

Yeah. Im on Vista 64 and using the shortcuts provided by steam / install everything works fine for what its worth. Dark Force 2 is just weird though because you cut to windowed mode for the menus and the videos.

Actually it seems to perform better in windowed mode lol. I of course immidiatly grabbed this pack. So far so good. If you have issues there are some initial release notes if you go to each games forum (look on the games page in the store and look at the bottom for the forum link). Nothing horrible though. Seems they made sure these would work for most everyone and they point out things they obviously must have seen as very common under tests.

15. Re: Morning Consolidation Aug 31, 2009, 15:11 Wolfen
 
Personally. And this is just me speaking. Not like anyone cares. =P

But I think used game sales are fine. But if the developers want to have a better shot at at least "lowering" the sale of used games they should consider dropping there prices all together. It seems to me that Steam alone has proven quite successful in selling and even at times outselling there own games when they go on these crazy weekend blow out deals.

But, im no business man so what the hell do I know?
