Why I Won't Buy GW Products

Games Workshop threatens IP lawsuit over unrelated use of term "space marine."

I understand that the onus is on the owner of a trademark to protect it, but the term "space marine" predates Warhammer 40k by several decades. Things like this are why I will not buy GW product and haven't for about 8 years or so. They're the biggest fish in a small pond and they unnecessarily throw their weight around. That and I never really enjoyed their background or the 40k rules.

The author in question has managed to make contact with someone to represent him. Best of luck for the pain in the butt that will ensue for him.
