I would think Oracle would have a very tough time enforcing that trademark, tbh. But they have extremely deep pockets and are litigation-happy, so who knows.
IP law in the US is pretty much insanity, so there’s no predicting how any court would rule on a given case. And most every ruling eventually gets reversed anyway.
Generally you need a history of cease and dissists along with ability to proove you used it first
you can say this about any system in vg and it’d still be true
Sad but accurate. The engine underlying the game is pretty great, but so much of what’s built on top of it is … not.
Least they have reduced battery drain
Nice! Ok it’s super good to know this may have been a law firm based tactic! Yay UK journalism!
Hopefully this tactic isn’t a test before a maelstrom. I haven’t looked into it since it’s first day of news. Clearly my news was still sensationalized. Lol
But dammit, Oracle just deserves a few slaps back down to earth. Just sayin…
They would need a lot more cease and dissist orders out before any lawsuits would go through
The “beauty” of the US legal system is that anyone can file a lawsuit for any reason, even if there’s no merit in the suit. Deep pocketed plaintiffs can file lawsuits (or send intimidating letters) all day, while the defendants (who are unlikely to have the financial wherewithal to defend themselves) are often forced to give in out of fear.
