Wrath of the Maiden

Hard rock band Iron Maiden has launched a USD 2.000.000 trademark suit against the makers of video game Ion Maiden.

According to the band, the game’s title causes confusion among customers through its near-identical appearance to the Iron Maiden trademark, as well as similar phonetical sound.

It also argues that the game’s main character Shelley Harrison refers to the band’s sole constant member Steve Harris and that her motif parallels Iron Maiden’s mascot, Eddie. It additionally brought into account similarities to Iron Maiden’s own video game Legacy of the Beast.
