EFF Moves To Nix Trademark On “Gaymer”

netbuzz writes “Spurred by the mark holder’s cease and desist letter to Reddit’s subreddit r/gaymer, the Electronic Frontier Foundation today officially petitioned the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to rescind its grant of a trademark registration on the word “gaymer”. ‘This registration should never have been granted,’ said EFF Intellectual Property Director Corynne McSherry. ‘Gaymer is a common term that refers to members of this vibrant gaming community, and we are happy to help them fight back and make sure the term goes back to the public domain where it belongs.'”
