Candy Crush Saga and CandySwipe settle their dispute “amicably”

45 sec read

The developer of Candy Crush Saga, King pursued copyright claims back in February against games which included the word “candy” or “saga” in their titles. In response to this, Albert Ransom, creator of CandySwipe wrote a letter to King in which he admitted that the two games were indeed similar. However he stated that his own candy-themed game was released two years before Candy Crush Saga.

The independent developer of CandySwipe is withdrawing its opposition to King’s Candy Crush Saga after initially accusing the mobile developer of copying its game. Back in February, after King pursued copyright claims against games with the word “candy” or “saga” in their titles, president of Runsome Apps Albert Ransom wrote an open letter that pointed out the similarities between his game, CandySwipe, and Candy Crush Saga, which was released two years after CandySwipe. “When you attempted to register your trademark in 2012, I opposed it for ‘likelihood of confusion’ (which is within my legal right) given I filed for my registered trademark back in 2010 (two years before Candy Crush Saga existed),” Ransom said. “Now, after quietly battling this trademark opposition for a year, I have learned that you now want to cancel my CandySwipe trademark so that I don’t have the right to use my own game’s name.”
