http://www.argentuma.com/ release products under the name of Argentum. May be legal issues, dunno.

they're different products- they are both software but only one of them is for entertainment.

yeah, i could think of an example of this elsewhere, but i don't want to.  instead i've been mulling over the legal issues of all the puzzle bubble (bust a move US) clones, like zio's bubble blaster, and Jimmy's whatever bubble... how is that legal?

The enix one was changed to Bust a Groove in the US, Bust a Move was it's Japanese title, while Bust a Move was the US title for the Japanese game Puzzle Bobble.  Got it?<br><br>good. :)<br>

WTF? Why do I lose 100 posts for being annoying? I think 100 posts is kind of harsh for one or two stray posts. Not that I care at all about the number of posts I have.<br>Could you atleast change my tag to something other than Admin Mocker, maybe "Editor" or "Master of Moose" or "The Most Important Contributer to Our Site". Huh? How about that last one?<br><br>[on topic]<br>Wow, ya. Look, that thing has the same name. Maybe we should kill em [is what Chuck would say]<br>[/off topic]

Who cares, argentum is a widely used name, and to tell you the truth, i am using it because of Argentina, so is my coutry going to sue me because i love it?, i don't think so.<br>Anyways... can anyone tell me how they can sue me if i live 10004303032 miles away?, <br>Really, i have no clue about the laws and stuff, i find it strange that someone can sue me from so far away, so i'd really like to know.<br><br>Last modification: CARPEDIEM - 06/14/01 at 15:44:43

They can't do much of anything. If it was a heavily trademarked brand like Coca~Cola then there can be serious issues raised because Coke is known the world over. Coca~Cola has spent billions of dollars over the last century to make it the brand that it is.<br><br>Something as ambiguous as Argentum would get laughed out of court.<br><br>A little trivia: Coca~Cola REQUIRES it's employees to type the name with two capital "C's" and a hyphen... further enforcing the brandname.<br><br>Last modification: randall - 06/14/01 at 16:08:14

More Coke Trivia:<br><br>Where does "Coca" come from? The Cocaine leaves used to addict the first wave of Coke's customers.<br><br>Could you imagine buying a soft-drink that actually lived up to it's "Refreshingly Invigorating" slogan?<br><br>

Yeah, but they haven't used cocaine in their drink for nearly a decade. :)<br><br>Okay, maybe it's been a little more than that.

Uhmm, since Argentum is an universal name for the 47 element of the periodic table (Ag) (silver), I dont think someone can sue you about it. IMHO.
