We've given Tim Langdell a wide berth (like, for nearly two years) rather than assault you with incremental developments in the legal proceedings involving his ridiculous, all-encompassing trademark claims to the word "Edge." But we'll check in now, as a court ruling in the U.K. affirms what many have long suspected:…
Edge, the iPhone game that kicked off the latest and nastiest battle over over trademark rights to the word in video games, is back up on the iTunes App Store as "Edge by Mobigame."
Tim Langdell's released a lengthy statement - including e-mails between himself and Mobigame - presenting his version of events in his efforts to protect the trademark "Edge," and defending himself against the portrayal of his actions by the gaming press.
Tim Langdell's not really a developer - "litigator" might be a better job description - but the Lord of Edge is really on the IGDA board. Now someone's started a petition to remove him.
"Edge of Twilight" was announced more than two years ago. Just last month, Tim Langdell, notorious for claiming all uses of the word "edge,"in video games, filed a trademark application for exactly that name.
