Despite there being numerous novels and short stories which use Space Marines, all of which pre-date GW, the lawyers at GW have decided that they own the name Space Marine.

On a completely different note...I wonder if Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone poop money? They wrote the Fighting Fantasy novels, which I grew up with (and with numerous fingers in numerous pages in case I made the wrong choice) and then they decided to make GW. Steve Jackson went on to found Lionhead studios with Peter Molyneux and Ian Livingstone was CEO of Eidos. Now that I think about it, these two men probably had a bigger influence over my childhood entertainment than anyone else in the world.

It turns out that Chaos has their own band...
