Lima Sky Withdraws Doodle Claim on App Store

What's worse? That he tried to trademark the word "doodle" or that he felt he had to trademark the word "doodle?"

I totally disagree, I feel he really had a legitimate claim here. Especially when he mentions consumer confusion - for a while after all the doodle games started coming out (after doodle jump exploded in popularity) I assumed they were all related, and I'm sure I wasn't the only one. That's bad for business and it's obvious why all of a sudden a million developers started calling their games doodle this or doodle that. It was bad form on their part and he should have some claim to the trend he started.
