Sounds like a win for king. Essentially they've neutralized two key opponents and keep the trademark.

King myself those trademarks was not the outcome I wanted to see.

This trade-marking of everyday words it's incorrigible.

I won't be purchasing anything from king. I hope those backfires on them in a big way.

You'd be right if Ransom's game were named Candy Crunch or something which could easily be mistaken for "Candy Crush." But "Candy Swipe" is pretty obviously different, and King applying for a trademark on "Candy Crush" does not give them ownership of the word "Candy" in any game.

This has always been a case of King way, way overstepping their legal authority under trademark law. I would've preferred the lawyers behind it being disbarred for ignorance of the law. But I suspect King will be canning them for leading the company on this wild goose chase, which I suppose is good enough.
