No need to get your panties in a bunch! You guys don't understand - the only companies that wouldn't be able to use it would be companies that sell the same type of product as SP, ie. paintball companies. Anyone else can use that slang because they aren't selling the same thing.

It isn't that unique - Microsoft uses "Windows", Apple uses "Apple" and they invented and use the word "Mouse", so on and so forth....no law suits over those words being used by other companies. See?

i don't even know what to say to the bunch of you, except to stop thinking about it, there's nothing of concern... cuz obviously you don't understand, you don't PAY for using trademarks. YOU GET SUED FOR STEALING THE GENERAL LIKENESS OF A COMPANY FOR MAKING ADVERTISEMENTS THAT LOOK LIKE THEIRS, IE: USING THEIR TRADEMARK TO APPEAR TO BE FROM THE SAME COMPANY. i hope the massive font helps

I know this...IT WAS A JOKE!!!!!

They don't read your posts for a reason, apparently... (<~~~ proper use of a dodgy, btw)

Just playin' with ya Claus, much <3! Kinda lame that SP has to resort to advertising of this kind to buy into our newer players coming in... Speaks a lot about them!
