Tim Langdell loses his edge

Written by Nick Farell


Wake of the EA victory
Judge William Alsup has approved a move to cancel Tim Langdell's collection of "Edge" trademarks after he lost a legal battle with EA, concerning "Mirror's Edge."

Langdell runs Edge Games who has been enforcing its trademarks relating to the word "edge" earning it the online reputation of being a Trademark troll. In September 2009, Electronic Arts asked the US Patent & Trademark Office to cancel a range of registrations associated with Edge Games after it was threatened by legal action by Edge Games with respect to the title of EA's 2008 game Mirror's Edge.

The case went tits up for Langdell when Judge Alsup backed EA's assertion that Langdell had been deceiving the US patent office. The court was also shown that Langdell had allegedly submitted a cover of Edge magazine doctored to include references to his own products and organisation as part of of his 2004 application for continuing trademark rights to the word 'edge.'

Judge Alsup said that EA proved that there was no bona fide use of the "EDGE" mark in commerce by plaintiff, its licensees, or its predecessors in interest at all between 1989 and to at least 2003. The court has now officially stripped Langdell of his trademarks and told to inform "all persons and entities with whom a licensing agreement has been obtained involving the trademarks asserted herein that the marks have been cancelled.
