  • Activision’s Call of Duty: Space Warfare trademark gone

    Despite all our hopes for the future of the Call of Duty franchise being placed entirely on the possibility of the existence of a Space Warfare subfranchise, it doesn’t look like that’s going to be reversing all the negativity thrown at the blockbuster series by fans of Battlefield any time soon, as the trademark for […]

  • Bully trademark reminds us Rockstar promised to revisit PS2 classic

  • Blizzard trademarks “cute but deadly”

    Blizzard has filed a US trademark for the phrase “cute but deadly” across a variety of goods and services. Don’t get too excited, though – the publisher has not picked up the trademark as it pertains to video games. Looks like a merchandising drive is in the works to me. Thanks, Gamespot.
