Is anyone a #lawyer here, or a person with good knowledge of #intelletualproperty #law? #IANAL and I may need a little #help. Not a legal advice, I'm just curious and can't seem to easily find this information.

Let's say that for a few years I have been working, in my spare time, on my own hobbyist project (e.g. an open-source game) named X. Is it possible for someone else to register X as a #trademark, and limit my ability to use X commercially? Or even non-commercially?

In other words, can anyone register any free trademark, regardless of whether they "created" it or whether anyone else is using it non-commercially?

If this differs by country, suppose USA.

I know of at least two #libregame projects that had a trademark problem, but the trademark usurpator seems to always have been the original author of the projects, even if no longer active in development.

Thanks for any clarifications!


 
#Xonotic #soundtrack -- Rising of the Phoenix

Great soundtrack for a great game I have become a little addicted to. Available under GPL (both the game and the music of course).

#OpenMW, a #FOSS rewrite of the #Morrowind engine, officially announces it will be merging the #TES3MP project -- a multiplayer fork of OpenMW.

announcement

I used to contribute to OpenMW in the past, and got to try the multiplayer in early stages -- big fun even back then. We need a free content for OpenMW in order to create a full #libregame equivalent for Morrowind.
