I heard they tried to trademark the word "Nazi" when they produced some WWII
game once,...sad. I also heard in the recordings of the Gencon Fasa
press-conference done by one of the members here (don't remember who, I
applogize), that FASA has the word "Matrix" trademarked. Did they ever
receive a healthy influx of cred from the Wachowski brothers for the movie
"Matrix" or did they let it slide?
