What will happen to Ghost in The Shell? If EA trademarks Ghost? They mangaka will have to change the titles to Spirit in The Shell, or Soul in The Shell, and pay fines and licensing fees for all of the other copies of Ghost in The Shell titles he's sold. That's one possibility.

You would not be able to write books, do movies, or other video games with that word in it. It's pissing me off, thinking about it.

Yeah, there should be a ban on copyrighting a word in the dictionary, it would be ridiculously hard to not say the word.
As for if they succeed in copyrighting it, then ghost ghost ghost ghost ghost haha I'm gonna get myself sued for saying that word XD

I wonder how difficult it would be to copyright all currently uncopyrighted words in the English language?

Really, this has to be one of the stupidest things I've ever heard! Is EA trying to compete with Konami for the title of worst company?

It's not as bad as people think, first of all they have a studio called Ghost. So they probably want to make sure no other company can have a game studio with that name. And the ghost trademark only applies to certain things. Copyright, patent and trademark are 3 diff things!

They want to trademark "Ghost" as used in Navy-SEAL game stories about military operatives--because of the flood of non-Clancy knockoffs that Tom isn't getting royalties from--but unfortunately the real operatives already coined it first.
EA didn't invent "Ghost recon agents", and neither did Casper.

Is EA under some sort of contract that requires them to do a certain amount of dickish things every year?

I trademark the letter "a." Pay up.

Better learn Mandarin and other squiggly lines for now on.
