Separate names with a comma.

I don't see the problem, yeah copyright laws... Nobody cares about names anymore.
Copyright holders evidently do.
That's stupid. Viewers only care about the content, not the name. It's not like the world ended.
not as bad as Bethesda was with copyright names.
At first glance, I would have thought a tv show with that name was based on the game. This isn't too surprising.
Can that name even be truely claimed? Which is a dumb question I know, but I think this goes back to using same name for different media types which TNT can get away with I believe. Maybe not, since entertainment is sometimes classified into one group as opposed to say, a ma and pa restaurant.
If you pay money for a copyright, you're not going to want others to use it. It's pretty fair, they've got to protect their interests.
Good. Law enforcement at its finest.
The titles are too similar, what would you guys say if Microsoft released a portable and named it "Gameboy"? It's clearly not a Game Boy, don't you see that there's no space in the middle?
There are silly cases and there are legitimate ones - this one is legitimate. Names of products and services are their integral part and should be covered by copyright protection, plain and simple. If it's "just a name and no big deal" then it's equally easy to change the name to something else.
You do not pay money for a copyright. For a trademark it is probably different though.
Yeah, L.A. Noire and L.A. Noir is too similar. That little e doesn't change the pronounciation and will clearly cause confusion. Especially since L.A Noire is so new.
Compare with the Bethesda thing: "The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind", "The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion", "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" and Mojang's game "Scrolls"
Naaaah, not that similar.
GBAtemp. Your home for journalistic excellence.
y = mx + b
y = 4(1) + (-4)
y = 4 -4
y = 0
y = how many fucks I give
L.A. Noire wasn't my type of game anyway.
