Rebellion sues Stardock and Ironclad over Latest Sins of a Solar Empire Game

August 17, 2012 -

Hot on the heels of yesterday's story that Stardock was suing its ex-marketing manager over Elemental: War of Magic, we learn that the company is now the target of another lawsuit involving a UK developer.

Sniper Elite maker Rebellion has decided to follow a questionable lawsuit against Stardock and developer Ironclad Games over their recently released Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion. The claim, which was quietly filed way back in June asserts that the Sins of A Solar Empire game violates its studio trademark and might confuse consumers into believing that Rebellion is somehow involved in developing the game.

In its lawsuit, Rebellion points to promotional materials, reviews, and videos that refer to the new Sins of a Solar Empire game as "Rebellion." Rebellion says that it sent a cease and desist letter to Ironclad Games in April, but the studio refused to change the game's title.

I did not know there was a company called Rebellion, but I do now. Grats on getting your name out being associated with asinine lawsuits. (A company called rebellion abusing an in place legal system strikes me as hilarious too.)

Well Rebellion, if you really want to make yourself look like an obnoxious asshole in the eyes of gamers...
