In May of last year, a company called NovaLogic sued Activision saying that MW3 infringed their “Delta Force” trademark. Today a US Judge has ruled in favor of Activision saying they did not infringe that trademark.

“Because the phrase ‘Delta Force’ and its insignia have an established and well-known prior meaning and connotation … that is unrelated to plaintiff and that meaning and connotation predate plaintiff’s use of the registered trademarks, it is highly unlikely that consumers will be misled,” Judge Walter said.
