A California judge has cancelled Tim Langdell's hold over the Edge trademark, ending a long-running dispute over the name with iOS developer Mobigame, EA and others.
EA filed a Consolidated Petition for Cancellation that covered a number of Langdell-owned trademarks back in 2009. This week, finally, they were granted.
The court documents, dated 17th April, cancel Landell's rights to Edge, Cutting Edge, Gamer's Edge and The Edge, filed by him over a number of years.
The long-running Humble Indie Bundle initiative has finally made the leap to smartphones.
This week sees two noteworthy iOS titles getting big-screen ports. Culinary slice 'em up Fruit Ninja becomes Fruit Ninja Kinect, while Mobigame's Edge teeters onto PC and Mac.
Mobigame's retro-styled platform puzzle game Edge will be released on Steam and the App Store for Mac on 11th August.
Mobigame CEO David Papazian has responded via Eurogamer to the statement made last night by Edge Corp., the company run by Tim Langdell.
Newsflash! Games are pretty good, aren't they? The fact that the BBC's Panorama has taken approximately three decades to work out what some of us sussed out the first time we clapped eyes on an arcade machine in the early eighties is investigative journalism at its most biting. In other news, food is pretty tasty, and some people eat too much of it.
In fairness, some people are just plain stupid and do things to excess, but is that the fault of videogames and the people that make them? Should we be encouraging them to make them less entertaining so that we can go back to smashing up bus stops for kicks? I don't know about you, but I've got a particular bone to pick with those irresponsible folk at HBO for continuing to make TV shows that render me powerless, and nail me to a chair for hours at at a time. Sometimes, I feel literally paralysed with entertainment.
And on that note, let me introduce you to a fine selection of downloadable treats that might just do the same to you.
Infamous litigator Timothy Langdell has been booted from the International Game Developer Association for "lack of integrity" and "unethical behaviour".
"Nuisance litigator" Timothy Langdell has been stripped of his 'edge', 'cutting edge' and 'gamer's edge' trademarks after a legal battle with EA.
EA's recent victory against trademark hound Tim Langdell was "extremely good news" for the developer of iPhone puzzle game EDGE, but the war "it is not over yet".
Mobigame and Connect2Media believe Edge Games has no "enforceable" registered trademark in the UK or the US and that Tim Langdell's company has "misrepresented" what it does own.
Tim Langdell's Edge Games has told Eurogamer how "completely certain" it is of beating EA - and Mobigame - in court.
Tim Langdell's Edge Games has convinced Apple to remove Edge by Mobigame from the App Store for a second time.
Mobigame boss David Papazian has told Eurogamer that the tide has turned against Tim Langdell and his Edge videogame-name lawsuits, and hopes no other developer "will ever hear of him again".
Mobigame's EDGE has returned to the App Store after a long and well documented legal battle with Tim Langdell.
Mobigame claims to have "overwhelming support" in the EDGE versus Tim Langdell/Edge Games argument, and appears to be considering keeping the EDGE name for its acclaimed iPhone game after all.
At the end of 2008, we thought we'd try and do away with roundups. On the one hand, they're a useful way of picking through the games we might otherwise miss out. On the other hand, there's usually a good reason for missing them out, and if we're interested enough to write about something, why not give it a day in the sun?
With the iPhone, though, there's just no avoiding it. Not only are the games far more numerous than their DS and PSP counterparts, but they're often much cheaper and smaller, too, and the quality level is rising. The bigger and better ones will get their own reviews - everyone wave to Rolando! - but we want to get through as many of the good and interesting ones as possible, if only to justify the itemised App Store bills that keep piling up on my desk. So here's some of the stuff I've been obsessing over lately.
