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.

Wonderkarpthe people who caused those events were sick mentally disturbed individuals, Not people with Political Differences or Gamers. and in comparison, a Bomb Threat is NOTHING compared to Real Child Murder. I hope you choke on your own Bile05/28/2015 - 5:40am
WonderkarpI'm calling you out in public, MechaRash. What you said in the Gaming for Everyone News Post was DISGUSTING. In No way has Gamergate, OR Gamers in General ever been involved in a School Shooting Nor will they ever05/28/2015 - 5:38am

MattsworknameI feel ups should have a hard line expiration date. if a company doesn't use them for ten years they have to put it on the market or make it open source05/27/2015 - 11:34pm
MechaCrashPride does play a factor. If you sell an IP to someone, and they make a ton of money off it, it makes you look like a tool: why didn't YOU make that money? Better to sit on it than be embarassed that way.05/27/2015 - 10:58pm
ZippyDSMleeAS far as I understand it the suits think sitting on a an IP till the time is right is more profitable than tradeing it around.....hevean forbit soemone use soemthing to make money with....05/27/2015 - 9:58pm
