King settles The Banner Saga and CandySwipe trademark disputes

0

Yay!

Oh hey good news! King stopped being idiots and settled the trademark disputes they had over the word "saga" and "candy" with a couple of small studios. Stoic Studios, developers of The Banner Saga, released a statement last month saying they "have come to an agreement with King regarding Stoic’s The Banner Saga trademark, which enables both parties to protect their respective trademarks now and in the future."

Meanwhile the maker of CandySwipe released a similar statement:

"I am happy to announce that I have amicably resolved my dispute with King over my CandySwipe trademark and that I am withdrawing my opposition to their mark and they are withdrawing their counterclaim against mine. I have learned that they picked the CANDY CRUSH name before I released my game and that they were never trying to take my game away. Both our games can continue to coexist without confusing players."
