ZeniMax files trademark for Dragonborn

In April, ZeniMax Media filed a trademark application for the dragon shout "Fus Ro Dah". Now the company has filed another trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, this time for the popular term "Dragonborn", a rare individual who has been born with the blood and soul of a Dragon, but the body of a mortal. On May 15, 2012, ZeniMax Media submitted the application (Serial Number: 85626061). The goods and services cover, "Computer game software for use with computers and video game consoles; downloadable computer game software offered via the internet and wireless devices".

The story is too old to be commented.

They can't trademark what was originally not theirs. Cecil Harvey from FFIV was the original "dragonborn" as it is written in the Mysidian Legend.

One to be born
From a dragon
Hoisting the light
And the dark
Arises high up
In the sky to
The still land.
Veiling the moon with
The Light of Eternity,
It brings
Another promise
To Mother Earth with
A bounty and mercy.

Cecil Harvey - Paladin > No Name Skyrim character

Like people know what the hell the Mysidian Legend is. It was obviously a light hearted joke.

Isn't Bethesda a sister company to Zenimax?
