The US patent office allocates search sessions per visit, so no direct links will function. Below are some directions on how to see what Sage and I see

1st: click the link, --> http://www.uspto.gov/ebc/indexebc.html
2nd: You will see three columns: Patents, Trademarks, other. Click search(TESS) under the Trademarks column and Trademark EBusiness
3rd: Click 'New User Form Search (basic)'
4th: Fill in 'Blizzard,' for the 'Search Term.'
Note: Be sure to assign 'Owner name and address' for the 'Field' parameter!!
5th: Look for 'Diablo.' It should be the first one (There is one for Diablo I, II, and one for LOD, but LOD says LOD, LOL).
5th(cont.):Click 'Diablo'
6th: Enjoy!

    The patent for Diablo II:Salvation was filed during 2002. What is Diablo II:Salvation anyway? If it was the original Diablo II or even LOD, then isn't the date wrong? since Diablo II came out in 2000 and LOD in 2001.

    Unless the they needed to renew it......

    DiabloII:Salvation is a collection of Cinema quality cut scenes formatted into a sort of Diablo movie yet to be released.

    It is something about license or copyright. If you didn't know, Blizzard just renewed thier license for the name 'Diablo' last December which has supposedly expired. This means Blizzard is definitely planning something, or not why would they even need the name for?

    Correct me if I am wrong

    Could just be that they want to keep other people from running off and making cash by using the Diablo name.

    But it's a hope!

    *Crosses fingers*

    most of the names filed in there were out 1-2 years after being filed there. we should keep our eyes open for any "diablo 3" filed in there ;)

    So this is it heh......the wait is over! (Soon anyways)
  • #13 Tyrael_the_mighty
    Hmmm if they all ready own the Diablo brand then why patent it again under the same name?
  • #14 Equinox
    It was said a few posts ago, because it was expiring.
  • #15 Tyrael_the_mighty
    Cool. So they are either planning something, or ya could be negative and say they just want to renew their patent so no one else can use it. :p

  • #19 Akkassha
    I feel the same way King. But, that patent expiring in Feb of this year doesn't bode well...

    I'm still not sure what all of that means... or what I just said.

    Preparing for dissapointment? Possibly.;)
