Pwnage (TM); Are They Serious?
It seems like the thing to do these days is apply for trademarks on commonly used words and phrases for financial gain. The latest scheme is Finnish software company Futuremark Game Studio who recently filed papers to protect the trademark “pwnage”. It’s becoming absurd that so many companies try to claim credit for things they didn’t even create themselves. Something tells me they will get away with it though. Something also tells me that anytime you use the word “pwnage” from now on, you might as well send a check for a dollar to Futuremark.
