Gamezebo has posted an interesting article about King, the makers of Candy Crush Saga. Apparently the company has successfully trademarked the word “candy” in the realm of things like video games and clothing. Starting last week, at least one developer who uses the word in the title of a casino game has received a notice from Apple to change the titles of their game.
It’s a strange, somewhat troubling development, but not unusual in the realm of trademarks. You can read more about it over at Gamezebo.
