Mythic versus MS & Mythica

Mythic Entertainment Files Suit Against Microsoft for Trademark Infringement is the press release with word that Mythic Entertainment is suing Microsoft over the title Mythica, MS's upcoming MMORPG. Here's a bit:

The case, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, in Alexandria, alleges that Microsoft's forthcoming online game, "Mythica," and pre-release publicity for such game, infringes Mythic's name and federally-registered trademark MYTHIC ENTERTAINMENT®, and amounts to unfair competition in violation of federal and state law. The complaint alleges that the term "Mythica" is so similar to Mythic's registered mark and name as to be likely to cause confusion, mistake or deception among consumers. Mythic is seeking a permanent injunction and economic remedies. Mythic Entertainment objected to Microsoft's use of "Mythica" previously, but Microsoft refused to stop using the name.

Cicatrix, I think you're just really dumb. If i go by your opinion very common company names such as Shoes Inc. or Coats Inc., even though they don't exist, could sue anyone using part of their company name. Are you just that stupid? Mythic is a general word, and similar as somebody already said on this board so far, if some company names itself Ring Entertainment, will they really be in position to sue Peter Jackson and J RR Tolkien's family for Lord of the Rings, or the directors of the "Ring" movie? (that movie sucked anyway but you get the point)

QUOTE: I don't see why so many people here get so pissed off about this kind of thing. I know you spend most of your time locked up in your room and need SOME way of venting rage, but please, calm the fuck out. Mythic has a pretty good case here.

hahaha I can't say anything else that you're a stupid human being. If the court really starts to think everybody is so fucking stupid they can't tell the same word or *SIMLIAR* words in this case, in different contexts, then I'd rather move to anywhere else than this country. Jesus H Christ someone that stupid needs to be shot.
