>Sony has filed a trademark for the term 'Let's Play', according to an entry on the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

>The trademark was discovered by a user on NeoGAF following a registration attempt by Sony Computer Entertainment America last October which, according to the application, is seeking to cover the "electronic transmission and streaming of video games via global and local computer networks; streaming of audio, visual, and audiovisual material via global and local computer networks".

It probably won't work for the same reasons Hilton couldn't trademark "that's hot," but it's nice to think of the e-celeb meltdowns it would create.

This, same as when Nintendo did the whole youtube program thing.

People on /v/ bitched about nintendo being evil, but honestly, anything that's the enemy of youtubers is an ally.

Good for Sony.
>>
>>323560771
And Nintendo literally trademarked 'Living Room'
>>
If it'll finally kill off the Youtube/Twitch cancer, I'm all for it.
>>
Only thing is now we're gonna get a million more youtube videos just like when Nintendo tried it about how evil they are, only it'll be Sony. And faggots will eat it up regardless just because some man on their computer screen told them to.
>>
>Nazi 2006 Sony is coming back after 10 years

oh for fuck sake, theyre morons again
>>
>nintendo tried to fuck youtubers off by not allowing them to make money with Nintendo-owned content
>/v/ claims Nintendo is worse than Stalin

>Sony tries to trademark the words "Let's Play"
>"based Sony!"

It's funny how this board went from "it's okay when nintendo does it" to "it's okay when Sony does it" in less than a year.

>/v/ doesn't know the difference between Trademark and Copyright
>/v/ thinks trademarking a term will stop anything

Do most channels even directly use the term LP anymore?
>>
>>323560771
Leave it to a NeoGAF user to be autistic enough to find a trademark for let's plays.
>>
>>323561646
>/v/ is one person

I'm fine with both, and I don't even hate youtubers
>>
>>323561436
And Amaterasu, but you don't see an Okami sequel yet

isnt that the name of the japanese sun god

can you actually trademak a god people worship?
>>

i wonder if retard that thought it was a good idea got fired
>>
good
>>
>>
>>323561646
Sound like Nintendo fans are just the cancer who wants to defend the YouTube fucks who are killing gaming while Sony fans are happy to see them get taken down a notch.
>>
>>323562169
>isnt that the name of the japanese sun god

Also the universe, but yeah. they can trademark things like that. But only for vidya related things
>>
>>323562352

How does it sound that way to you?
>>
>>323561632

Nazi 2006 Sony is precisely what this industry needs right now. If they can help kill off or at least cut down on the Let's Play trash, it's a step in the right direction.
>>
>>323562346
But that was a patent for the Kinect?
>>
Why can't anyone trademark the phrase "*blank* reacts to..." I swear the videos are more cancerous than Let's plays
>>
>>323562494

No, it was filed by Sony
>>
>>323562691
sauce me nigga I've been under the impression that was for the Kinect for the last 5 years or so.

There's a bunch of other ones similar to it. Sony really wants ads in their games.

How would the trademark of the term "lets play" kill lets plays?
>>
>>323563895
It wouldn't, Sony would just get free advertisement.
Leave it to /v/ to have no idea what they're talking about.
>>
Trademark isn't copyright.
The previous thread showed just how hilariously some anons here jumped the gun.
>>
It's OK if Sony does it! :^)
>>
>>323560771
in b4 "They only want to trademark it so that no one else will"

>>323560771
i'll try to trademark the term "game" and "video game", so everyone using it shall pay some royalties to the big boss.

Twitch has already killed youtube lets plays
