Tomb Raider caught in the act ... of TM filing

The IPKat has read in Eurogamer about how very coy computer games publisher Eidos has been, keeping quiet over suggestions that the new Lara Croft game will be called Tomb Raider: Underworld. Apparently the publisher was spotted filing a US trade mark for that name, spotted by the keen eyes of specialist monitoring site Trademork.

Says the IPKat, it's unbelievable how much useful commercial information is available on the trade mark register, the patent register and from other easy-access sites. Why is so little use made of them? Adds Merpel, given Ms Croft's fashion preferences, shouldn't it be Tomb Raider: Underwear?

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
