Catholic organization Opus Dei sues Danish game maker | The Detroit News | detroitnews.com
The makers called the game "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.
Dema Games, a small company, obtained a copyright for the full name of the card game in 2009, and claims on its Facebook page that "no one entity can claim sole rights to religious concepts of any kind." The game is the brainchild of a philosophy student, Mark Rees-Andersen, 28, who launched it in January 2009.
