Lover of all-things EDGE-related Tim Langdell has now turned his head back to games development after his EDGE-related lawsuits against Future and EA.

Mobigames’ EDGE is now available again on Apple’s App Store. Yours for £2.99.
The game fell victim to Tim Langdell and his amazing trademark squatting, and has been in limbo for months.
EA challenged Langdell recently, saying none of his claims to the “edge” name were valid as he wasn’t currently using it for commercial purposes.
Maybe he got the hint.

EA has petitioned the US Patent & Trademark Office to cancel a range of registrations associated with Edge Games, Inc.
In the petition, EA’s lawyers allege that Edge Games claims against companies using “Edge” in their titles aren’t legitimate as they’re not associated with a trademark used in active commerce.
There are numerous citations in the 28-page document, which seeks to have Edge Games’ various trademarks cancelled.
Edge Games is owned by Tim Langdell. More on EG.

Former IGDA board of directors member Tim Langdell issued a statement about his recent departure, saying that he wasn’t pushed out the door. Rather, he chose to vacate his position so that the IGDA wouldn’t be caught in the crossfire between Langdell and those who are out to get him.
“I make this decision,” he said, “not because I have done anything wrong — on the contrary I am confident that all accusations against me were unfounded and purely intended to defame, and am confident that I have at all times acted in the best interest of the IGDA and its membership — but because I must make this decision between concluding a process that will show I did no wrong, and having that process irreparably damage the IGDA, I cannot permit the latter to happen.”
“This has to drive my decision today, taking priority over defending myself against these accusations to a conclusion.”
Langdell added that he’ll remain “active” in the IGDA, though obviously not in any sort of leadership capacity.
The man’s a saint, clearly.
Full statement’s after the break.

Speaking with VG247, IGDA Executive Director Joshua Caulfield said today that Tim Langdell decision to resign from the IGDA board of directors was for “personal reasons.”
Caulfield refused to elaborate further and directed us toward Langdell for a statement. Which we’ve done.
There’s more on the resignation here.

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.
