APPLE PULLS CLICKER HEROES FROM STORE

Clicker Heroes is a popular game that has been played by countless thousands since it surfaced on steam and mobile devices. Now news that some devious Chinese company has filed a trademark dispute and Apple reacted by removing the game from the store. For those with the game installed already it is still available.

In a post on Reddit, the Playsaurus co-founder and CEO explains that their game was using the Clicker Heroes name first. There’s evidence of this on a Chinese web portal dating back to 2014.

But because Playsaurus didn’t file a trademark application locally, Shenzhen Lingyou Technology was able to come along in February 2015 — around three months after Clicker Heroes made its debut as a Flash game — and steal the name.
