Call of Duty ‘Warzone’ trade mark lawsuit

Activision’s Call of Duty ‘Warzone’ is one of the most popular gaming titles to have ever been made, attracting new players every day. However, game developer, Randy Picker, is now facing legal action from Activision over the Warzone trade mark, despite the fact that he launched his game three years before Call of Duty. Nevertheless, the gaming giant is still pursuing a legal battle against the game developer over the ownership of the ‘Warzone’ trade mark.

Consequently, Randy has had to set up a GoFundMe page in order to defend the lawsuit from Activision, with the hopes of keeping the trade mark for himself. Randy’s target was set at $50,000 and he managed to raise $12,000 of it in the first 12 hours alone. The game developer has promised that all funds will contribute toward fighting the Activision lawsuit and also stated that he is overwhelmed by all of the support to help him defend the trade mark.

Picker launched his ‘Warzone’ game title back in 2017 and has been committed to building up the strategy game over the last decade. He will be determined to defend the mark, as ‘Warzone’ remains his only source of income, with him being the sole party working on the game. Be sure to stay tuned for upcoming updates on the matter, on our reading room.
