Last week King, the developers of Candy Crush Saga and publisher of numerous browser-based games, made headlines a few times for a few different reasons. First it was about the company trademarking the word ‘Candy’, then going after another game called The Banner Saga for its use of the word Saga, and then it was about a developer accusing King of publishing a copy of their game.

The developers of Candy Crush Saga have been in the news a lot over the last few days and not for any particular good reason. King made headlines over the recent trademarking of the word ‘Candy’ and then made even more headlines by trying to go after the developers of The Banner Saga because they used the word ‘Saga’, another word that King has trademarked.
