ACCLAIM BY ANY OTHER NAME IS STILL BANKRUPT

July 20, 2005

Acclaim Entertainment has been liquidating its assets since it filed for bankruptcy in September. Its trustee has now negotiated an agreement to sell the 'ACCLAIM ENTERTAINMENT"? name to Central Investment Holdings LLC for $100,000. 

At one point, Acclaim had a heck of a trade-mark portfolio. Now, however, most of its marks have been abandoned (at least in Canada). Some of the abandoned marks include JUICED, VEXX, BMX XXX, RAZOR, JINX, FURFIGHTERS, TRICKSTYLE, ARMORINES, RE-VOLT, IGGY'S RECKIN' BALLS, BATTLE MONSTERS, KILLING ZONE, SPIRIT MASTER, FORSAKEN, CONSTRUCTOR, COLLEGE SLAM, ARENA ENTERTAINMENT, FLYING EDGE.

Ironically, their registration for SWEAT THE DETAILS is still alive.
