https://www.theguardian.com/music/2...o-game-developers-for-2m-over-ion-maiden-game So, Iron Maiden are suing the publishers of an indie game Ion Maiden for infringing on their trademark. Like, okay, the name is similar. The logo mark is VERY different and the game has nothing at all to do with the band Iron Maiden, nor does it even try to look similar to Legacy of the Beast in any way. They're claiming "blatent" infringement on their trademark and that it's confusing customers. Meh, I think that's a stretch at best. I can't believe that anyone would get confused here. Of course their fanclubs and so on are going to support them in this and claim that "Yes, it confused us." They'll have a hard time convincing the rest of us to be confused. I heard about this game because of this sue case and honestly, there's no way I would have thought it had anything to do with the band. The name might have reminded me of them alright, but that's it. The game has very positive and overwhelmingly possitive reviews, so can't help but think that the band wanted in on a slice of the profits. Had it not made any money, don't think they would have cared. The devs/publishers wrote on the Steam page today: What do you make of this? Greed? It feels kinda similar to how Apple sue every company that dares to put anything resembling an apple in their logo, as if they somehow own the fruit. They do this because they can, not because they need to. Most people Apple goes up against can't afford to fight it. >.> I guess it has the unintended effect of getting us to check out a game that we've never heard of. So the indie devs might actually get some much needed publicity now.
