Judge Rules Against ‘Edge’ Trademark Troll Tim Langdell

Remember this jerk? Looks like EA is cleaning his clock in court:

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.
