Reddit Gay Gamers to Fight Gaymer trademark

2nd February 2013

Read it.

Members of Reddit’s /r/gaymers community are taking legal action following a cease and desist letter regarding their use of the trademarked term “gaymer”.

“Gaymer” — a term for gamers who self-identify as part of the LGBT community — was granted as a trademark in 2007 to Chris Vizzini who owns gaymer.org but members of the gaymers subreddit are petitioning to have the trademark revoked on the grounds that the term should remain in the public domain.

Pass the popcorn.
