I started making a little Olympics game featuring 100m Dash, 110m Hurdles, LongJump, HighJump and JavelinThrow. But now I see that the word “Olympics” is a trademarked word according to Wikipedia. So I am gonna call it FlashSports I guess.
But does anybody know if those games are also somehow trademarked or something?
I cannot imagine that the 100m dash (and such) would be copyrighted – the names are extremely generic (unlike ‘Olympics’) and the sports are thousands of years old. I’d say you’re fine when you refrain from calling them anything Olympics-related
Thanks. What about “FlashSports”? I guess it is not a good choice either. Guess I will call the game “ActiveSports”
