Mobigame Considers Legal Action Against Tim Langdell

October 7, 2010 -

Mobigame, sees an opening and it may take it. At least that's what one of the many companies targeted by Edge Games over the use of the word "Edge" says. The developer who created a game for the iPhone called "Edge," tells Eurogamer that it may seek legal action against Tim Langdell and his company.

"It is not over yet," Mobigame CEO David Papazian told Eurogamer.net. "Now we will continue to support EA in the battle against Tim Langdell. The next step is to have all his trademarks cancelled by the USPTO."

"After that he will not be able to damage anyone, he added."

"We are still thinking to start a legal action against Langdell to claim a reparation for the prejudice," Papazian claimed.

There are plenty of other developers, publishers, and video game accessory makers that may line up against Edge Games in court, such as NIS America, who had to license the word edge for its PS3 RPG Cross Edge..

Eh... while I am glad Langdell has finally been stopped..... Mobigames was also a bad actor.  A more popular bad actor, and a bad actor fighting a 'bad guy'.. but they were still dicks who only got away with it because they were dicks to someone that the community does not like.

And for the same reason I dispise the schoolyard bully who is careful to only pick on the unpopular kids.. I have grown to dispise Mobi too.

I honestly don't understand this.  If someone colossal jerk came to you and tried, at every turn, to destroy your livelihood in an extortion scheme, I'm guessing you wouldn't react very well to it, either.

When looking at all the things MobiGame did, exactly what did they do that was so dickish?  They were trying to fight back against a guy who is about to be tried for fraud, as well as a known liar, extortionist, and stalker.  Anything that Langdell says MobiGame did to him has to be thrown out the window at this point, doesn't it?

Re: Mobigame Considers Legal Action Against Tim Langdell

What you are saying make absolutely no sense to me, I plainly don't get it.

Maybe because I know all the stuff that Tim Langdell did (like, don't pay developers, and brag in the office about how he don't paid someone... Or get into a flaming ball of fail in england, and move to the US so he could continue with his nefarious schemes. Oh, and he has a restraining order against him, for stalking a actress that hired him to make her webpage... Considering how much his company webpages sucked, I think that actress don't got her money valued... In fact Tim Langdell also made the current IGDA site, visit it, and see how great work he did...)

You know GP, I'm not trying to be a pain or anything, but that first paragraph is really messed up. I'm not just talking about a minor grammer error or typo, it looks like the first few sentences got scrambled a bit.

Tim Langdell is going down in a flamming ball of fail!

Finally. I hope that the rest of the companies that Langdell harassed in the last years take the next step against him.

Watching JT on GP is just like watching an episode of Jerry springer only as funny as the fights

America has just became its own version of the Jerry Springer Show after a bizarre moment in Florida involving a carnival worker.

MonteThough from a business side, i would agree with the article. While it would be smarter for developers to slow down, you can't expect EA, Activision or ubisoft to do something like that. Nintnedo's gotta get the third party back.02/28/2015 - 4:36pm
MonteThough it does also help that nintendo's more colorful style is a lot less reliant on graphics than more realistic games. Wind Waker is over 10 years old and still looks good for its age.02/28/2015 - 4:33pm
MonteWith the Wii, nintnedo had the right idea. Hold back on shiny graphics and focus on the gameplay experience. Unfortunatly everyone else keeps pushing for newer graphics and it matters less and less each generation. I can barely notice the difference02/28/2015 - 4:29pm
MonteON third party developers; i kinda think they should slow down to nintendo's pace. They bemoan the rising costs of AAA gaming, but then constantly push for the best graphics which is makes up a lot of those costs. Be easier to afford if they held back02/28/2015 - 4:27pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2015/02/28/the-world-is-nintendos-if-only-theyd-take-it/ I think this is a interesting op-ed, but yeah it kind of is stating the obvious.02/28/2015 - 2:52pm
