Was the Half-Life 3 European Trademark Filing a Hoax?

Was the Half-Life 3 European Trademark Filing a Hoax?
Half-Life is the game that put Valve on the map. The last full game in the franchise was Half-Life 2 way back in October 2007. Ever since that launch, fans have been clamoring for the next installment in the franchise – presumably called Half-Life 3.

Apple Doesn’t Own iPad Trademark in China

Apple Doesn’t Own iPad Trademark in China
It must really suck to be the person in charge of securing trademarks for Apple right now. Apparently, Apple thought that it had the trademark for the iPad name in China. Or at least it thought its team of legal ninjas could beat down the Chinese opposition that owned the trademark.

Samsung Trademarks Next Smartphone Name: Galaxy Sleek

Samsung Trademarks Next Smartphone Name: Galaxy Sleek
While most of us are still content to be looking forward to the Galaxy Nexus or continuing to use the Galaxy S or S II from Samsung, the company is always looking down the road. Samsung has recently filed a trademark application that seeks to get dibs on the name “Samsung Galaxy Sleek.”

Nintendo Wants to Trademark “on Like Donkey Kong”

Nintendo Wants to Trademark “on Like Donkey Kong”
I know we have all heard the phrase “on like Donkey Kong” uttered on more than occasion. This is one of those phrases that can mean all sorts of different things depending on the situation. I’ll use it in a sentence for you, here it go.

Nintendo Trademarks 3DS and a Bunch of Other 3DS-Related Names

Nintendo Trademarks 3DS and a Bunch of Other 3DS-Related Names
Even though the name of Nintendo’s next-gen portable gaming platform hasn’t yet been officially announced, since it’s going to be a 3D device, it’s appropriate that 3DS was just trademarked by the Japanese giant.

Apple Already Selling iPad (Sorta)

Apple Already Selling iPad (Sorta)
I was checking out the App Store to see if anyone had already been releasing updates for their applications to take advantage of the larger screen on the new Apple iPad, and much to my surprise, I found this: Apparently, a company called Groove Systems has been selling an application in the App Store called “iPad” since sometime back in late 2009.

Hey, Look at That: Drum Hero

Hey, Look at That: Drum Hero
Activision has a real obsession with heroes… at least, the musical kind. They’ve just filed a trademark for Drum Hero. But can’t we pound on plastic drums already? In several different ways? I guess it really needs its own brand.

Gaming Away Again in Margaritaville

Gaming Away Again in Margaritaville
I’m not really sure what a Margaritaville game might entail, exactly. The tragedy of salt shakers gone missing? The smell of shrimp? Old men wandering around in tank tops? Jimmy Buffett wandering around in a tank top?

Super Mario is Really a Plumber, Really.

Super Mario is Really a Plumber, Really.
I’m not too sure what the trademark police will have to say about this one, but this UK plumbing firm shares more than just a profession with Nintendo’s popular mascot. I’m not sure if SuperMario Plumbing & Heating thinks they can avoid the wrath of the Big “N” by removing the space from the name, or if the fact that Luigi doesn’t work there is is enough to differentiate them.

Apple and Cisco Kiss and Make Up

Apple and Cisco Kiss and Make Up
Apple and Cisco have been duking it out over the last few months over who rightfully possessed the right to use the moniker “iPhone.” Tonight, the companies have jointly announced an agreement which will allow both companies to use the iPhone name on their own products.

Cisco Suing Apple Over iPhone Trademark

Cisco Suing Apple Over iPhone Trademark
A few weeks back I told you about Cisco/Linksys’ new line of voice over IP products being marketed under the “iPhone” brand name. Well now that Apple has announced their hot new iPhone, it looks like they never completed the process of working out a deal with Cisco to use the name.
