Video game fans have been anticipating the latest franchise from CD Projekt Red, Cyberpunk 2077, for years. But only recently did it come to light that the makers of The Witcher franchise had trademarked the term “Cyberpunk” and this week some fans cried foul. Now, the developer is insisting that everything is ok and they’ll never use their power for evil.
How can you possibly trademark a common word?! Another example cited in this article is Sky TV suing SkyDrive and No Mans Sky for having the word Sky in it. This is ridiculous!
