Hello’s CEO Sean Murray tweeted out that his firm had been engaged in what he called “secret stupid legal nonsense.” It turns out the British television network known simply as Sky owns the copyright for that name. Apparently, the network believes that means no one can use the word in any kind of title, even it’s preceded with other words such as “No Man’s.” While we may never know just what happened with the settlement, we do know this is yet another twist in what has been a rather odd saga for the game.
