NovaLogic suing Activision over Delta Force trademark violation

Tuesday, 15th May 2012 17:59 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Delta Force developer NovaLogic is suing Activision for violating its trademark over the use of the Delta Force and a similar emblem in Modern Warfare 3. NovaLogic has held the trademark on Delta Force since 1998, and in its complaint states the term “Delta Force” is not in use by the US government: “The US. Army officially denies that any unit called Delta Force exists and does not claim ownership to either the Delta Force name or the logo.” The firm claims it also issued two cease-and-desist letters to Activision last year, which it claims were ignored by the firm. Nine Delta Force gave have been released, and a tenth titled Delta Force: Angel Falls is purportedly in the works. More on Polygon.

    NovaLogic best sort their shit up, I want to play new Delta Force game.

    Even though I support every single try to get money from Bobby, they really need to produce something if they want to continue to use Delta Force.

    Fat chance.

    That would be like Activision sueing HBO for the right to use the 101st Airborne.

    If Activision had marketed MW3 as a “Delta Force game” they might stand a shot, but they don’t own SFOD-D, nor does anyone else except that unit, and the army it serves.

    They own “Delta Force, the game” not “Delta Force, the unit”.
