That update from king is completely ignorant and self important.

Build on *THEIR BRAND OR CONTENT"?

Squeenix is just watching with bated breath while they hold their Romancing saga game cases just to pop out one day and say "hey guys look what we got, forget about us?"

Or they'll take the high road and dismiss the matter all together, boo high road.
Going further back, the Saga term cannot be trade marked as it has been used for hundreds of years, there are the nordic Sagas, even the Lord of the rings is called a Saga.

I think the guy who approved of that is high on something.

And this is why we can't have nice things, because someone thinks someone is out to steal their candy sagas when all the other guy wants is sagas with banners. Kid theses days, trying to sue people because they can.

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.

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

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

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.
