Candy(TM) Crush Saga

Pixelot of The Gentleman Gamer writes: "The developer King (www.king.com), creators of popular games for your phone or toddler, have actually gained the word “Candy” as a trademark. They now have the ability to crush little developers, and even clothing companies for using the word “Candy” in their title, or on their products." (Arcade, Casual games, King.com, Mobile)

They are just taking this shit too far, and it will alienate them from the people playing their games,

"They now have the ability to crush little developers, and even clothing companies for using the word “Candy” in their title, or on their products."

That's just crazy, and it also shows how flawed trademarking is...

I expect a lot of little children to get sued around Halloween for wanting some candy (TM)...
