Company Drops Trademark Application for 'Candy'

Candy Crush Saga maker King has abandoned its attempt to trademark the word “Candy” in the U.S. after acquiring the rights to a “Candy Crusher” trademark filed by Harrier Software last year. Officially, at least, getting Candy Crusher out of the way was the reason King, which recently filed for an IPO on the New York Stock Exchange, dropped the trademark filing.
