The game was inspired by the Chinese/Japanese board game Go. Since the name Othello is a trademark of Pressman Games, other companies use the title Reversi, which has become the widely-accepted generic name for the game. However, in 2006, a European trademark for toys and games called Reversi was registered by the German board game company Ravensburger. Several Reversi-based video games' titles have been changed at the company's request.
