Tim “Edge Games” Langdell has lost a round in court with EA over
the use of his “Edge” trademarks. In refusing his request for a
preliminary injunction, judge William Alsup described Edge Games
as ‘trolling’ and suggested that it could face criminal charges.
“Given the suspect nature of Dr. Langdell’s representations to
both the USPTO and the Court concerning plaintiff’s current and
future sales and business activities, it is an open question
whether plaintiff’s business activities legitimately extend beyond
trolling various gaming-related industries for licensing
opportunities,” wrote the judge.
