Apple banning games with 'memory' in the name from App StoreGame maker Ravensburger is reportedly putting pressure on Apple regarding iOS games with “Memory” in the title. The German game and puzzle manufacturer claims to hold a trademark on the term in over 40 countries. Ravensburger makes a popular line of games called “Memory” with international recognition. In fact, the group claims that 91% of Germans are familiar with Memory, the game.

Apple has not issued a comment, though Gamasutra claims that iOS developers whose games include the term “memory” and are internationally distributed have received notice to make a name change. If you’re on that list, let us know in the comments.
