Umm, that reminds me of a website I started also in April 2004, lol. It had the (German) slogan "Ownage pur" which is pretty similar to PP. I guess we're like brothers in mind or something icon_biggrin.gif

PS: Yep, I love necro'ing

That's as dumb as when Paris Hilton put a copyright on the phrase "That's hot" and tried to trademark it. Nobody should be able to own a word. Maybe a company name/logo, as a way of preventing people from stealing your company name...but all you have to do is copyright your logo, don't trademark it.

Well, so long as they keep their word and trademark it for the sake of preventing others from doing it for poor reasons, we shouldn't be too worried.

Anyone have a follow-up to this yet? What happened?

I figure this would probably interest many, since I was bored and decided to read forums for a while vs polishing my boots! Yea these days people will try and grab anything they can, greed as it seems will always outperform morality and ethics!

After reading this forum I typed in the words futuremark and pwnage together in google and got this http://tarr.uspto.go...;entry=77405812 enjoy!
