Monster Power goes after Monster Hunter for having the phrase “Monster” in its identify. The Monster Power model, recognized for its vitality drinks and for being a sponsor for occasions all through the gaming trade, has began a trademark combat with Capcom. Actually, this isn’t the one time that the corporate has gone after different publishers and builders for daring to place the phrase “Monster” in its recreation names.
Monster Power had Ubisoft change the identify of a recreation previously
As reported by Automaton Media in Japan, the rights holder of Monster Power has filed trademark registration objections to Monster Hunter and even Pokemon, as a result of it says that its model can be confused with them.
This all appears very foolish and frivolous, however Monster Power efficiently had Ubisoft change the sport beforehand often called Gods and Monsters to now Immortals Fenyx Rising. So the implications are fairly actual.
Thankfully, the Japan Patent Workplace isn’t having any of this, and has acknowledged that “there isn’t a threat of inflicting confusion as to the origin of the product.”
I imply, I’m unsure Monster Power actually desires to open this could of worms any additional, as a result of by the identical logic, Nintendo and Capcom may argue that it’s Monster Power that’s inflicting the confusion right here. Or maybe any firm with “Power” in its identify may go after them too. At any charge, this doesn’t precisely make me need to drink something from Monster Power (not that I’d anyway).
It was confirmed that Monster Hunter Rise is not going to have a bodily launch on PS5 and PS4, and Capcom has launched a RE4 Remake parody anime.
