I got some interesting and helpful news

I had queried about this kerfuffle with Ubisoft and their claim of IP Violation due to the name of my photo series “Assassin’s Guild”

This is the response I received:

“The word “Assassin” (in various spellings) dates back to the Crusades. UBISOFT is literally trying to trademark a word of medieval origin. What’s more, they are trying to trademark only part of their own title, which would be like George Lucas trademarking the words “Star” or “Wars.” That is against trademark law, and you can countersue against them for filing a frivolous claim for the purposes of harassment."

I really hope that RedBubble administration does th right thing. I really don’t want to have to hire a lawyer when I’ve done nothing wrong.
