Future beat Langdell in Edge legal battle

Tim Langdell, owner of the Edge Games name, has lost a legal battle with Edge Magazine, owned by Future Publishing. The two have been at each other’s throats for the past few years while Langdell claims ownership over the “Edge” name.

As Rock, Paper, Shotgun reports, a court ruled Langdell’s evidence in the case “absurd”. He was charged with¬†breach of contract, breach of copyright and passing off. That evidence included providing a floppy disc that Langdell claimed was from 1991 showing the original Edge logo. He claimed that this meant he had designed the logo rather than Edge, but this was soon shot down once it was revealed the file on the disc was made on Windows 95. Oops.

It’s the end of a long legal battle that was¬†largely forgotten by now, but at least the good guys won. Go Edge!
