Is this better or worse than Bethesda trademarking "scrolls" because people will confuse that with the elder scrolls?

You know what, I'm going to trademark the word "of, it, the, at, in, and" and take my money. Might even trademark "mario" while I'm at it.

Seems like king could be sued by Square-Enix if they want to argue over "saga"

I really wish they would start punishing lawsuit abuse.

DedValve Thankfully Mojang can still use "Scrolls" in the title of their game. Too ridiculous.

WTF is King.com even doing? Trademarking "candy," then trying to pretend "saga" isn't a commonly used word in games and other media?

Don't forget "um". You'll make loads of cash every time someone tried to explain something that they weren't prepared to explain.

Meanwhile I think I'll go trademark fanboy, drone, bot, and elitist, I doubt I need to explain why.

I might not get rich but it'll sure be fun.

King is a bunch of scumbag assholes who made it big off of a simple Bejewled type game, I REALLY hope all this blows up in their face and they get screwed over by their attempts at intimidating others

ImmoStride, their statement about the notice is already going to cause this case to blow up in King's face.

However, like any prudent company, we need to take all appropriate steps to protect our IP, both now and in the future.
And like any prudent individual seeing this level of bull shit corporate bullying of a smaller company makes me what to bitch slap the *bleep* out of every member of your company.
