Many companies who use the word 'edge' can now breathe a sigh of relief as the long-running legal battles around the EDGE trademark are brought to a close. US court documents reveal the trademark is declared nulled.
This means Tim Langdell can no longer demand payment for use of the word, which landed EA's Mirror's Edge in legal strife. It's especially great news for EDGE creator Mobigame.
Edge magazine from Future Publishing was another target of Langdell's trademark wrath, as have many other companies and products been because of the word 'edge' in them.
"It took us 2 years to create EDGE from scratch, then we waited 4 additional years for this day to happen," remarked EDGE creator David Papazian. "This story represent 6 years of our lives but now the road is totally clear for EDGE. We are so happy for all the victims of this trademark troll, truth and justice finally won!"
In celebration of this common sense ruling, all platform versions of EDGE are discounted by 50%.
