The Banner Saga and CandySwipe Trademark disputes have been settled by King.
The following statement appears on the Stoic Studio website:
Stoic is pleased to have come to an agreement with King regarding Stoic’s The Banner Saga trademark, which enables both parties to protect their respective trademarks now and in the future.
King’s Ransom stated on his CandySwipe website,
I am happy to announce that I have amicably resolved my dispute with King over my CandySwipe trademark and that I am withdrawing my opposition to their mark and they are withdrawing their counterclaim against mine. I have learned that they picked the CANDY CRUSH name before I released my game and that they were never trying to take my game away. Both our games can continue to coexist without confusing players.
Both games were being targeted due to trademarks filed by King for “Saga” and “Candy” – the latter of which was withdrawn in the US.
