Hi guys, due to a copyright claim we have to rename our game that was called Starbase Admiral. Brainstorming over it is a complete bitch however, but we've come up with a few solutions. But I have questions.
Can I use a name that someone already used but hasnt trademarked?
There is a game that came out in 1993 with a name I like, but I can't find anything about a company that made the game and there are only 2 entries for the game on google, both on ROM sites. So I'm guessing it's not a professional game in the first place. The name is NOT
trademarked either, but both mine and his are scifi games (but thats where the similarities end).
Does anyone who knows their **** know if I can still use this name?
If a word is common like "Cosmos", you're free to use it regardless of trademarks, right?
Please let me know. The names I would really like are:
- Stellar Outpost
- Celestial Outpost (not in use I think, b ut I like stellar better)
