Happy Meeple name stolen
« on: Today at 11:57 am »
Hello all,

We would like to inform you of the following sad news.

A board game publishing company in Belgium has been launched. Its name is "Happy Meeple games".

We would first like to state that this company has nothing to do with us.

This makes us very angry. We can't understand how someone can think that it is fine to use a variation of our name for a board game publishing company.

We reached out to them and are now in touch with their lawyer. For the moment, they deny any wrongdoing. Their main line of defence is that offline game publishing and online game publishing is not the same domain.

We argue that we have the same partners (publishers) and the same customers. It is therefore the same domain.

As I said, we are very angry.  >:(

Any advice welcome.

Marlene H.
