Mobigame Chief: Langdell’s Lawyers Have Fled

October 9, 2009 -

The developer of an iPhone game targeted for its use of the term “Edge” by extreme-litigant and Edge Games CEO Tim Langdell believes that Langdell’s lawyers “have fled.”

Mobigame head David Papazian told EuroGamer that Langdell “has absolutely no legal grounds” for his trademark infringement claim and that Langdell never actually sued Mobigames for past sales.

The Mobigame in question, Edge, has been republished on the Apple Store, under a slightly new name—Edge by Mobigame.

Electronic Arts filed suit against Langdell and Edge Games over the latter’s trademarks, an event Papazian termed “amazing.”

In a further twist, Papazian also accuses Langdell of infringing on a Graeme Devine (former id Software developer and ex-chairman of the IGDA, now an Apple employee) copyright, for an Edge Game iPhone title called Firebirds. Firebirds is a copyright owned by Devine claims Papazian, who also charges Langdell with stealing art for the game off of Deviant Art.

All it took was EA to flex a little legal muscle.

Langdell took on the wrong company.

In that case it would be Bat-Anti Troll Spray.

Oh please, if that happened Thomspon would keep trying to come up with reasons for Langdell to sue Take Two.

Re: Mobigame Chief: Langdell’s Lawyers Have Fled

Escapist reported that Thompson and Langdell met and discussed the possibility of Thompson serving as counsel. I still haven't figured out if it was a joke story a la The Onion or if it was for real. When two crazy people are invovled, I'm not quick to rule out any possibility.

That would be a fantastic crossover! The only result would be: LULZ and FAIL.

Anything to hasten his destiny- to rot in jail.

Re: Mobigame Chief: Langdell’s Lawyers Have Fled

His lawyers have... fled?  WOW.  I can't recall having heard of that in quite a while....

Hilarious.

Glad to see the troll getting a foot up his ass. Legally speaking, of course.

benohawkThat still isn't Steam pay royalties. At best it is Bethesda not being willing to relicense the music,07/27/2015 - 12:51pm
Infophile(cont'd) different service. This often happened with TV shows, where music was only licensed for broadcast, but not for DVD release. So for many older shows, they either have to relicense it or use different/no music for the DVD release.07/27/2015 - 12:36pm
Infophile@benohawk: It most likely comes down to the original licensing agreement for the music in it. Often those agreements only license it for the medium it first releases in, so it has to be re-licensed if it's rereleased in a different form or through a ...07/27/2015 - 12:35pm
benohawkWhy would steam be paying royalties on anything in quake?07/27/2015 - 12:01pm
black mantaI recommend using the KMQuake II patch which supports .ogg music files, then downloading the music from someplace, then dropping it in to a music folder into the \baseq2 directory.07/27/2015 - 10:32am
black mantaI got Quake 2 during the Steam Quakecon sale. Funny thing is, there's no music for it! Guess Steam didn't want to pay the royalty fees or something.07/27/2015 - 10:30am
black mantaLike EZK, I also have a backlog of games. Right now I'm playing Crysis 3 for the first time, and replaying Quake 2.07/27/2015 - 10:29am
E. Zachary KnightZippy, No. It is because I have a backlog of games a mile long and have not bought to many new games, which includes Mass Effect.07/27/2015 - 9:28am
