Games Workshop Files Suit Against Curse Over Warhammer Alliance Site
Games Workshop, the powers that be behind the Warhammer IP, have filed a suit against Curse Inc., the company behind several gaming fansites, which includes the one at the center of this dispute, Warhammer Alliance.com. In the complaint, Games Workshop cites trademark infringement, cybersquatting (on the domain name), dilution and unfair competition. A post informing the community of the suit was posted by DoranM of Curse on the Warhammer Alliance forums along with a link to the full complaint.
We wanted to inform our community here on WarhammerAlliance.com that Games Workshop has filed lawsuit against Curse for operating and maintaining WarhammerAlliance.com. We feel this is a blatant disregard of the needs of Warhammer fans, and the community we've worked hard to set up. The lawsuit cites trademark infringement, cybersquatting (on the domain name), dilution and unfair competition. You can check out the full complaint here. It also states that GamesWorkshop was unable to contact anyone who was an administrator or decision makers at Curse (despite the numerous links on our site...).
We are shocked and surprised by this filing when this site, created in 2005, is well known for being one of the biggest Warhammer Online game fansite.
We thank you for reading this and welcome your continued support - see you in game!
