There’s a bit of buzz on the net today about how the guy who made a big success with Doodle Jump is trying to stop others from using Doodle xxxx for their game names. A lot people say you can’t use dictionary words as trademarks. Fine. Thats not the issue.
Does anyone think, for a single second, that the others producing Doodle apps are not trading on the success of Doodle Jump? Does it cause customer confusion?
Of course it does. So while I think legal action is extreme, trading on the name of someone else is a weasel action. Make your own successes.
