From a quick check on the net, this sounds like cruel and unusual punishment. I must object. :P

I'm sure my old Star Wars toys claimed (c) / (r) / tm on "Imperial Guard" as well. (Hmmm... this puts a new twist on the old Imperium vs Empire debate. No longer "who has the best superweapons" or "who has the best storm troopers" but "who has the best lawyers").

I also remember Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles claiming (c) / (r) / tm on the names "Leonardo", "Michaelangelo", etc :roll:
