OldCoder claims to be currently trying to make the word “Minetest” a trademark in >= 4 countries, solely owned by OldCoder. One of them is Australia.

One part that's true is that I'm filing for the MT trademarks. Or attempting to do so; one firm in Australia seems to be backlogged, so I need to find another one there.
I hope to own the trademarks, if this proves to be practical, in at least four countries. This step was approved two years ago by Perttu Ahola. However, to be clear, the situation has changed and it's no longer amicable.
