Good, screw King. I hope King and its boss lose everything one day. They are the definition of greed.

The American copyright system is out of control. How can the words 'candy' and 'saga' be prohibited from use in the title of any non-King game? I understand the need for them to protect their brand but you can't create a game, give it a title and then claim ownership of the words you used.

People, and small independent developers should object about the abuse of the system the right copyright authorities and too Apple and Google.

I wonder how the Hasbro feels since they have a game called Candy Land which came out in like the 1940s

Shh..Your gonna get King sued for violating Hasbro's copyright on the word "Candy"

It is ridiculous. King's argument is that they have a whole host of 'Saga' titles, so they want to protect their franchise.

Its 99% likely King will be denied since the whole title is what needs to be used in order to violate a copyright. Saying the first or last word of a title is being stolen just doesn't work even in the flawed law system that exists this holds true.
