Sorry CCP, but "18 months later" doesn't pass when registering trademarks. You should know that!

They've been so busy working on it's development that they just plum forgot to read that notice of abandonment when it got to the office.

Isn't it common for projects to take on one name while the finished project itself has a completely different and unrelated name?

Maybe they don't want dust 514 anymore because it's not going to be called dust 514 anymore?

Well, either two things. Dust 514 is just a codename for the project and the real name will be revealed.

Other thing, and this is what I think this means, is that there trademark is for the image only, NOT the Dust 514 name itself. If you scroll down, there is a part called the Description of Mark and it describes the image, not the name. So chances are the art department doesn't want this as a final image or it was just preliminary.

Considering Incarna has also been called Ambulation and Walking in Stations, they're probably changing the name on this one, too. No longer Dust 514, now it's... ok I got nothing, but I bet this is what it is. That, or they're stupid.

If you noticed ccp dropped the dust514 moniker a while back and went with just dust. This has been the norm for a while now and even the ign vote thread had it listed as just dust. But hey don't let that get in the way of a perfectly good 'lets bash ccp because its fotm' thread. Smile

Ontopic: Welp thats several years worth of development time down the drain. I bet incarna is just a smoke and mirrors job too. MadMadMad

1. Nice catch !
2. Why are you even checking government sites for abandonned trademarks ? Twisted Evil
3. As everyone said DUST 514 is probably a codename. And it better be, cause it really sucks as a name.

Is registration of my mark required?

No. You can establish rights in a mark based on legitimate use of the mark. However, owning a federal trademark registration on the Principal Register provides several advantages, e.g.,

constructive notice to the public of the registrant's claim of ownership of the mark;a legal presumption of the registrant's ownership of the mark and the registrant's exclusive right to use the mark nationwide on or in connection with the goods and/or services listed in the registration;
the ability to bring an action concerning the mark in federal court;
the use of the U.S registration as a basis to obtain registration in foreign countries; and
the ability to file the U.S. registration with the U.S. Customs Service to prevent importation of infringing foreign goods.


Basic Facts About Trademarks

Looked it up, it means nothing. CCP can still claim it, but it is not registered. They may have registered it in Iceland and the US might just recognize that, or by having it in Iceland, CCP could then sue anyone who uses the trademark illegally in their home country and have the home field advantage.

^^ This. If it means anything, it is that they've changed the logo.

Unfortunately we'll be waiting 18 months because they forgot to trademark "soon".

Maybe they have realized how much of a failure dust is going to be, and are abandoning it.

CCP Oveur was on vacation.

Everything goes to hell when the boss goes on vacation. It's perfectly normal in any professional company for this to happen Very Happy

Dust 514 was just the code name. The real name will be EVE 666 or maybe STFU EVE 123. Smile

I hope a die hard PC gamer takes the trademark and holds it ransom. A real PC gamer. The type that still plays text adventures just to spite consoles and achievements.
