Trademarks are different from pantents. Different system and laws all together.

To clarify, patents are concrete processes or machines (i.e. what makes up a product). Trademarks are names associated with whatever brand or product (i.e. what identifies a product). Not at all the same thing.

Gosh... Owning words? What kind of patent is that? Sigh, I think thugs are more respectable patent trolls. They just make a living hurting innovation.

Exactly! This is why this whole court business is stupid! Minecraft sounds more like Warcraft than Scrolls sounds like Skyrim! If the games are differnet enough, let them have the names the devs choose!
