Asteroids HD Kickstarter : Did Somebody Say IP Infringement?

Marcus Estrada writes: "Crowdfunding is a marvelous avenue for getting your idea out there to millions of people who will potentially help fund it. The key aspect here, however, is that it is indeed 100% your idea. Today a campaign for Asteroids HD launched and, while a totally respectable concept, the developers at NewWorldCoders are almost certainly going to need to change that name - and fast. Sure, "asteroids" are a real thing and not inherently copyrighted, but a very famous video game by the name of Asteroids is owned by Atari. To name your game "Asteroids HD" will be viewed by Atari as an intent to profit off their property, regardless of what the team actually meant."
