When we attempted to establish a Twitter account for the site we were dismayed that a cybersquatter was infringing on our business name.

Hardcore Gaming Lounge uses “Hardcore Games” which is trademarked, and they do not even use their own proper name which is “Hardcore Gaming Lounge”. This is a clear example of a wilful infringement of our Tradement. The also use @hardcoregames instead of @hardcoregaminglounge which would be distinct from our existing business.

We have contacted Twitter and we await their determination. The number of problems we face demonstrate the headaches any startup has to face.

Twitter has indicated that they will not take action against a willful infringer. Twitter under law would be an accessory after the fact.
