SON OF COCKY: a writer is trying to trademark "DRAGON SLAYER" for fantasy novels

2018-06-14

Back in May, the romance writing community was rocked by a scandal after author Faleena Hopkins started enforcing a trademark over the common word "COCKY" in the titles of romance novels; I predicted then that there would be some sociopaths who would observe the controversy and decide that it was an inspiration, rather than a warning, and start trying to use trademark to steal other words from writers and their titles.

IT HAS BEGUN.

An entity called "MSE Media LLC," registered to a private residence in Austin, Texas and listing the email address of Austin IP lawyer Tim D. Chheda as a contact email has filed an application to trademark "DRAGON SLAYER" in connection with fantasy novels.
