Tim Langdell's 'Edge' trademarks are finally cancelled

The Tim Langdell 'Edge' saga is well and truly over, as the U.S. patent and trademark department has noted that all of Langdell's trademarks relating to the word Edge have been cancelled.
The Tim Langdell 'Edge' saga has finally well and truly come to an end, as the U.S. patent and trademark department this week noted that all of Langdell's trademarks relating to the word Edge have been cancelled. Langdell previously filed lawsuits against multiple game developers who had used the word Edge in their games, including Mobigame with its mobile game Edge, and major game publisher Electronic Arts for Mirror's Edge. He claimed that he held the rights to the use of the word in the video game industry, and became known for challenging individuals and companies that used any of the words or phrases in their products. A U.S. District Court Judge then told Langdell in 2010 that his Edge trademarks were no longer valid. However, it has taken another two and half years for the trademarks to be outright cancelled. Trademarks for the phrases "Cutting Edge," Gamer's Edge,"The Edge" and simply "Edge" were cancelled as of April 17, 2013, with Commissioner for Trademarks Deborah S. Cohn signing off on the legal notice.
