Interplay wins injunction against Topware's Battle vs Chess game

You may remember earlier this year that developers Topware Interactive and Gaijin Entertainment released Battle Vs Chess, a fantasy strategy take on the classic chess game. That move apparently didn't make Interplay very happy. The publisher filed a lawsuit against Topware on September 24, claiming that Battle Vs Chess was an infringement on Interplay's own Battle Chess trademark.

In a recent filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Interplay announced that the court battle against Topware has succeeded in a preliminary injunction being granted that prevents Topware from "further use of Battle Chess or any confusingly similar title by TopWare." So that pretty much means that the game can't be sold until it gets a new title.
