"Space Marines" Now A Trademarked Phrase

Games Workshop has decided they own the term "Space Marines."

Frickin' unbelievable.

Doesn't surprise me even a little... ever since GW took on the more "corporate" feel they've slowly been going down hill. Hell the US president of GW wants to have Games Day in Tennessee instead of Baltimore.

How many existing books are now going to require checking their trademarked reference, because they used this term?

I think Tanya Huff uses it extensively in her Confederation series.

Can this even be enforced, considering that, as Gilroy said, the term predates Warhammer and has appeared in quite a bit of media?

It appears that one of the dangers of self-publishing includes the inability to defend yourself against frivolous law suits.

Is there really such a thing as "common law trademark?" Did Games Workshop not actually register it as an official trademark as the USPTO?

Uggghhh .... and this is why I switched to independent miniature companies. GW has forgotten when they proudly published pics of tanks made out of deodorant bottles and other companies' model kits.

Really? So because my current story has "dryads" in it, if I get it published, no one else can ever write about dryads ever again?

Seriously, how freaking stupid can these idiots be?!

Well, considering how Super-Hero is owned jointly by DC and Marvel, I'm not surprised.

Heh, I wish them luck with that. Actually I don't, I hope they lose their Shirt (tm) on it, but you know what I mean.

There, I used the word "shirt" in online media, with a capital letter and everything, so it's now my common law trade mark.

This is just doubly infuriating because Hogarth is such a sweetheart. I mean, it'd be awful if they did it to ANYBODY, of course, but she so doesn't deserve to have to deal with this sort of bullying.

Scalzi and Popehat have both taken up the cry, though, so I'm really hoping they don't get away with this.

They can claim all they want that they have been protecting the term, but - even without searching - I can think of dozens of instances of the use of "Space Marines" from the 90s and 00s. Anyways, it is about as generic a term as I can think of.

GW could have a boycott and public relations nightmare with this, if they are not careful. Once Scalzi and Popehat are involved, Doctorow and Whedon are not far behind, as well as an unflattering mention on 'The Big Bang Theory'.
