Is this trademark going to stay?
Candy is a broad word for everything. How odd for them to trademark this.

This is more silly than Elder Scrolls vs Scrolls lawsuit.
These people can just take all of my shit. I hope they gets what's coming to them, because this is total BS. Some developer has candy in their games name?.SUE THEM UP THE ASS! THEY ARE TRYING TO INFRINGE US AND OUR PRODUCT! HOW DARE THEY!

Way to try and kill small devs, I worry for the banner saga, and this is like Wal-Mart but for the gaming community, oh noes.

I know the reasoning why but there may be casualties along the way or maybe King.com will realise how dumb this is, especially the *saga* part.

"Candy-ass" and "apples" are still up for grabs, right?

I would imagine if this actually went to court Candy Slots would be found not guilty of trademark infringement, but it's too costly for smaller developers to fight it, and I think that's what King is banking on. They'll just push the little guys out of the market with weak reasoning to protect their $3 billion a day cash cow.

How the heck did that managed to get through the trademarking process? "Candy" is a common noun referring to a broad range of treats produced all over the place /obvious, You'd think that'd preclude it from ever getting trademarked.

Someone was half-asleep when they rubber stamped that >_>

which app isn't?

you gotta pay attention to what you put on your phone/tablet these days. some of those so called trendy apps and especially the free ones rely on gathering user statistics for their creators to sell to big companies. things like what i do, which programs i like to use, what sites i visit, how long, etc. kinda like facebook. they can do anything as long as the user clicked the agree button which nobody ever reads.

the best games are still being made by fellow geeks and people who love to create art. anything that is easy to make can easily be abused. especially if the list of terms is longer than the game itself.

There's still good games on the App Store that aren't money whoring. Of course a lot of games have in have purchases but you're not required to buy any.
