The Two Tribes
has word that the process of stripping Edge Games founder Tim
Langdell of the "Edge" trademark is complete, after being set into motion by a
court decision back in 2010
(thanks nin via
). They announce they are celebrating this with a 50% off sale on
EDGE, their no-longer litigated game:
Today marks an important day for the
trademark EDGE as the trademark held by Tim Langdell has been “Cancelled
by Court Order”!
In case you missed it, the original creator of EDGE, Mobigame, has been in a
long legal battle with a guy named Tim Langdell regarding the usage of the name
“EDGE”. Long story short Tim couldn’t trademark the name EDGE, since he
basically didn’t do anything with it.
Want to know
This is what David of Mobigame has to say about it:
“It took us 2 years to create EDGE from scratch, then we waited 4 additional
years for this day to happen. This story represent 6 years of our lives but now
the road is totally clear for EDGE. We are so happy for all the victims of this
trademark troll, truth and justice finally won! We feel that we have to
celebrate this major event in some ways, and we hope all the good people we met
along the road will celebrate with us.”
So, let’s celebrate by having a discount of 50% on all versions of EDGE!
The EDGE Trademark Victory sale ends on Monday (April 22th)
