Catholic Church Strikes at Danish Game Maker

Arguing his case in the Maritime and Commercial Court in Copenhagen, Danish game maker Mark Rees-Anderson was attempted to fend off attacks by the Roman Catholic Church against his use of the name “Opus Dei” for a religiously related board game. In an understandably controversial and perhaps frivolous move, the Roman Catholic Church is seeking damages and a revocation of copyright.

Opus Dei, the elite and powerful organization within the Roman Catholic Church, is suing a Danish publisher for alleged trademark violations involving a card game titled "Opus Dei. Existence After Religion."

Public hearings in the suit began Wednesday, and Opus Dei spokeswoman Joanna Engstedt told The Associated Press that Dema Games, the publisher of the philosophy-themed, strategy-based game, has no right to the use her organization's name, which means "work of God" in Latin.
