SEGA Have Apparently Lost the Shenmue Trademark

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Now here’s a strange one! Apparently SEGA have lost their rights to the Shenmue trademark because “registrant did not file an acceptable declaration under Section 8.”

Section 8 of the trademark policy details that to retain a trademark a company must show “continued use” or “excusable non-use”. In layman’s terms this just means that SEGA should either make use of the trademark or make a case for why they should continue to hold it.

This seems like a strange thing to happen as SEGA have used the Shenmue trademark in recent years as Ryo Hazuki from the series has appeared in both Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing and its sequel Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.

More on this as the story develops.

SEGA have said, “Sega cannot comment on specifics of ongoing litigation. But we are confident that the lawsuit is without merit and we will defend it vigorously.”

Lawsuit Filed Against SEGA for Misrepresenting Aliens Colonial Marines

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

A lawsuit has been filed against SEGA and Gearbox Software for misrepresenting Aliens: Colonial Marines to customers.

The case has been filed by Edelson LLC on behalf of Damion Perrine. The claim reads:

“Each of the ‘actual gameplay’ demonstrations purported to show consumers exactly what they would be buying: a cutting edge video game with very specific features and qualities.

Unfortunately for their fans, defendants never told anyone – consumers, industry critics, reviewers, or reporters – that their ‘actual gameplay’ demonstration advertising campaign bore little resemblance to the retail product that would eventually be sold to a large community of unwitting purchasers.”
