Activision files ‘Drum Hero’ trademark

Hero

According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, a trademark for Drum Hero has been filed by Activision. Whether the move actually means they are even developing such a title is questionable; they may just be looking to protect their ‘Hero‘ brand. The trademark covers, and I quote, “Toys, hand-held games with liquid crystal displays, musical toys; action figures and accessories therefor; arcade games; coin-operated video games; electric action toys; handheld unit for playing electronic video games; electronic toy drums”.

Were it for an actual game, surely it would have been a more sensible move to have given the Band Hero title to Guitar Hero World Tour and Guitar Hero 5, and left Guitar and Drum titles to instrument-specific games?
