Tim Langdell, the trademark troll behind the recent Mobigames Edge fiasco, has resigned from the Independent Game Developers Association board of directors. This comes shortly after IGDA members started petitioning for his removal.

Prior to taking the hint, Langdell abused his position by harassing anyone who used the name “Edge” as a game title. He hasn’t used the trademark to create a game in over 15 years, yet — as evidenced by the recent Mobigames attempt — he’ll sue the pants off anyone who does.

Good riddance, we say.
