Because Academi still holds the trademark?

Edit: also, because of naming policy §2b.

We've decided that CCP is right, and we will change our corp name.

Will will now be known as:

CCPwater IS Inc.
Ruining everyone's fun since 2003.

Sincerly,
Blackwater U.S.A. Inc.

"In game names may not: Reflect, glorify or emulate any real-world group or organization, terrorist society, criminal elements, discriminating organizations or their leaders and figureheads. This includes the use of names of real-world military, political or religious groups."

"c. No player may use the character name of another player to falsely represent his or her identity. Player created corporation and alliance names also fall under this policy, as do names of any other in-game entities."

However, same as Stargate SG-1 is doing.
You should potentially look into sending someone in Academi a written request to use the name.
Granted even if they do give you permission, there's no guarantee that CCP will allow you to use it. The policy doesn't state you can use real names with permission. It just states that you can't use real names.

Isn't Blackwater that merc company that got into trouble over in Iraq a while back?

You make a valid point, good Sir or Madam.

Well if it is a trademark issue, then CCP is bad at typing. They said it was offensive, nothing to do with trademarks.

Change it to "The peoples front of Jita", not the popular front though, their just spilters! Sad

[b][i]Eve is like the way that gun law equals a lot of deaths followed by a lot of people being real nice to each other, well, it would be if we all had our names and address posted on our character info! I wonder just how many players would still act like assholes? Fly safe, and lock your back door tonight
