    Why don't you guys believe The Dark Below was a real trademark anymore?

    It's on a government site... and what? Now you won't believe any Blizzard trademark after they just trademarked Corgis Unleashed? What I am about to say is not a troll, so don't randomly in fracture me like you usually do. I believe Corbis Unleashed is probably a new kid's game or something. Who knows? Why disregard The Dark Below just because Blizzard also trademarked Corgis Unleashed? And to say that a government trademark site is easily editable and free/cheat means that you have no clue on how governments are run or any sense of the worth of money.

    I still don't understand how it's a hoax.

    Honestly I think we got too close and they're doing this to throw us off.

    We'll know in a few months.

    As I was trying to say in another thread after this was closed (and revived? O_o)...


    I ask why we think that the Dark Below as that makes the assumption that people can just say "Here's $200, trademark Corgi's Unleashed in Blizzard's name". No government organization would accept that. You can't trademark for people or there would be a lot of people trademarking offensive material for companies they hate. I personally think it's silly to disregard the Dark Below just because Blizzard now trademarked something that you don't like (Corgi's Unleashed: probably a kid's game).

    Apparently the original news was too subtle, the "Corgis Unleashed" trademark was registered this morning for fun, as it turns out, there is absolutely no check and anyone can register something under Blizzard's name. This is an application, not a confirmation, you don't even need to pay the $275 application fee.
    From the front page, seemingly thats reason. I dunno either way I don't know how this stuff works

    It's in Blizzard's name. Does that mean I could trademark "Hot Sexy Nude Dogs" in Blizzard's name?

    Blizzard has no control over anything we print. Jesus.

    As well, you don't have to pay anything to set up the application. Did you even read the news post?

    Why I think it's a hoax because, the title of the expansion isn't compelling. Do you really want an expansion to be called, "The Dark Below?" Doesn't seem catchy to me.

    To make this easy to understand:
    1) Anyone can file an application in anyone's name
    2) It hasn't appeared on an official trademark site as confirmed

    Feel free to copy/paste this everywhere

    Is MMO-Champion being told to shut up by Blizzard? I asked a simple question and not only did I not get an answer to what I proposed, but I got closed for no apparent reason. I asked why we think that the Dark Below as that makes the assumption that people can just say "Here's $200, trademark Corgi's Unleashed in Blizzard's name". No government organization would accept that. You can't trademark for people or there would be a lot of people trademarking offensive material for companies they hate. I personally think it's silly to disregard the Dark Below just because Blizzard now trademarked something that you don't like (Corgi's Unleashed: probably a kid's game).


    Can anyone explain why my thread was closed? What did I say offensive? Did I break the rules? This is a real question.
    Actually, there was no offence. The mods just been closing everything "The Dark Below" related. Could it be a hoax? sure. Could it be the real expansion? Yes. Could it be a Dummy name, as they trademark 3 more names to throw us all off? yes.

    But the act of closing all the threads simply leads to more speculation that "The Dark Below" is the expansion.

    Dude, we said the same thing about Mists of Pandaria. How soon you forget. We hated that name too. The name of the expansion will never be pleasing to everybody.
