"Stop using our name," Says Online Game Industry's Leading Independent Developer and Publisher

FAIRFAX, VA - December 22nd, 2003 - Mythic Entertainment, developer and publisher of the award-winning massively multiplayer online role-playing game "Dark Age of Camelot(r)," and many other popular online games, announced that it has filed a lawsuit against Microsoft Corporation for trademark infringement and unfair competition.

"We have worked hard for eight years to earn our reputation for producing high quality online games, including games that compete successfully with those offered by the biggest corporations in the world, such as Microsoft," Mark Jacobs, president and CEO of Mythic Entertainment, said. "The Mythic name and registered trademark are the symbols of that reputation and quality, and they represent the goodwill and recognition we have achieved in the computer game industry and among consumers worldwide."

"We cannot allow Microsoft to usurp our rights, confuse the public, and use the Mythic brand to gain an unfair competitive advantage."

The case, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, in Alexandria, alleges that Microsoft's forthcoming online game, "Mythica," and pre-release publicity for such game, infringes Mythic's name and federally-registered trademark MYTHIC ENTERTAINMENT(r), and amounts to unfair competition in violation of federal and state law. The complaint alleges that the term "Mythica" is so similar to Mythic's registered mark and name as to be likely to cause confusion, mistake or deception among consumers. Mythic is seeking a permanent injunction and economic remedies. Mythic Entertainment objected to Microsoft's use of "Mythica" previously, but Microsoft refused to stop using the name.

"We had hoped not to have to resolve this in court, and it is truly unfortunate that Microsoft declined to respect Mythic's rights," Jacobs said. "But our name and mark are among our most valuable assets. We have no choice but to defend them, regardless of the size and power of our adversary. We would expect Microsoft to react no differently if someone launched an operating system called Microsofta just as Microsoft did when confronted with an operating system called Lindows."

I hope Mythic does win this too. It would be a good example to the online community that the big dog doesn't always get to make the rules.

Plus, I personally have been confused on occasion with the 2 names. Mythic and Mythica, sounds very fishy.

Go Mythic!

Bah, that's bull. Mithic is just trying to make money, all these stupid lawsuits now-a-days are just outright dumb. I havn't seen a legit sue since a few years ago, I hope this case gets thrown out. Who cares if Microsoft is making a game named close their company's name?

I agree.  And I totally beleive that the judge will toss this case out.  As much as I dislike Microsoft, I don't think that they need the use of such a small company like Mythic to promote their game.  Mythica is taking place in an imaginary world of lore and blah blah blah.  They are using a term to describe their game.  It would be a different story of copyright infringement if Microsoft used Mythic's logo.  Think of it this way.  Can Pizza Hut sue everybody with the word "pizza" in their name (i.e Godfather's Pizza, Cici's Pizza, etc)  No, because you cannot control the use of a word.  That would just be like saying everytime I spoke or wrote the word Mythic, then I am guilty of copyright infringment.  Mythic just wants cash cause their crappy little mmorpg is dying away.

I don't remember mythic ever reserving the right to the name "mythica" there is only one letter differance but it is not what they reserved the right to own so that no one could use it. They reserved mythic and only mythic.

The end is only the begining.

Ya, I am not sure on this one.  I mean..."Mythic" is the name of a company and "Mythica" is a product.  If MS had named their game "Dark Age of the Round Table" or started a sub-company with the name "Mythica Entertainment" then I could see a case.  I have a feeling you won't see this one making it to the courtroom.

Obviously I will be outnumbered in this opinion because most people are MS haters :)

WHOLY !(@&$@(!)#&

wow they really want money i like their "we worked hard for 8 years" hmmm so? your point is for 8 years you worked hard and somone coming out with the game mythica (which is the name of the game) is just to much that is such a copy on the company values and goals...hmm and that for oh 20+ years MS has just been planning to ruin your company name because their just a big monoply...gah...

what a load of BS, i hope microsoft just slaps them on the hand, and i am getting tired of people sueing MS...and man i am always on MS's side seeing as they provide my income.

Man i was proud of mythica and their community and to be apart of it but this is shamefull and ridicolous. I mean wholy crap..there is a huge distinction between mythica and mythic, i can't believe they think that using the name mythic is like MS has to much power and the ability to use a name that sounds similar.

whats next the Troll not liking their image in Dark ags of camelot? giid god. I say we piss them off and make a website called "THE LIGHT AGES OF CAMELOT" and then add a link called "MYST ISLES"

XD lololol

Couldn't agree more.  I just lost some of the respect I had for Mythic.  The whole lawsuit is beyond stupid.

A pathetic attempt to make headlines and revitalize a dieing game. i think that this is a mythic blunder on the part of Mythic HA HA HA i made a funny! best watch out they are going to sue me now. This has to be one of the dumbest cases i've ever heard. I hope that mythic gets slammed by the supreme court with filling a frivilous lawsuit, and fined accordingly.... stupid Mythic.

Having played DAOC i have a great respect for the people at Mythic and as a result i hope they win this. However apart from that i don't think they should even be doing this, yes Mythica is close to Mythic, but as someone said ones a product ones a company, i don't know who's going to get them confused it seems clear cut to me, Had Mythic have started this law suit much earlier in Mythica's development i would have been completely on their side but having left it till now i get a bit of a "too late" attitude towards it, but for me it's 75% mythic 25% MS.

Is this law suit reasonable?

Yes
No
I really don't care, i just want to play their games.

Thats too bad people are so anti-Microsoft just because they do things right and produce software so good it becomes the industry standard - but we won't get into that debate here  (I can still hear Netscape crying like a little school girl because Microsoft was giving thier internet browser out for free! Waa!)

Anyway, Mythic filing suit because Microsoft wants to use the name Mythica is just crazy. Seems to me Mythic is just mad because they didn't think to register that name in the first place. I guess if another company were to use the name Mythical we'd hear about another law suit.

Anyway Mythic, I hope you go bankrupt real soon. But on the off chance you don't, think with the next expansion you can change the body graphics of your crappy toons? Gets old seeing the same body with different heads. At the very least fire the person(s) who approved it. Sheesh.

Thats too bad people are so anti-Mythic just because they do things right and produce a game so good it becomes industry standard. I've never considered any of Microsofts game 'good' every single one i think has had a relativly limited content. As for Mythic going bankrupt thats a bit harsh, who cares if they do a law suit against MS they got the money no harm done really.

How do u know they only want the money? are you Mythic?  What kind of a name is Mythica for a game anyways? they should have named it with something from norse mythology.

This reminds me somewhat of the Megadeth vs. Megadeath lawsuit some years ago. ......and yes Megadeth won that suit.....Its somewhat similar and yet very different....
