Someone clarify because I am a dunce at these things.
 

I looked this up for **its and giggles.

This says that the Coleco Trademark is open yet those other guys that are releasing the handheld's says they own it.

They have the trademark through at least 2024.

It says the old trademark expired. When a trademark has expired it can be grabbed by anyone else which is what River West Brands did many years later.

Yea...The more I dig.

I posted my thoughts, dreams and expectations in another post so I don't need to repeat it here.

I can tell you that AtGames and other companies are still dealing with these people as owners of the Coleco properties.

My unsolicited opinion is if you have a truly great idea and the means to execute it, then lack of a known, albeit faded, trade name should be a non-issue. It's been my experience that picking up old company names can create unnecessary baggage, particularly within the ever vocal classic gaming community.

THIS. Proven repeatedly by the good folks in this community who hit egotistical roadblocks trying to make decent homebrew ColecoVision products for the people who want them.

I never said that (and not at this time). Only that we're continuing to work with them. You'll see where those games appear soon enough, I suppose.

Here's a very quick update:

The design of the Phoenix Faceplates (Both Standard and ADAM version) are now done! 

We should have a test print soon enough to show you 

Stay toons!  :)
