Report: Rockstar Films trademarked by Rockstar Games

If you're the cold, hard facts type then the headline basically tells you everything you need to know. Rockstar Games (best known for Austin Powers: Oh Behave! on Game Boy Color) registered the Rockstar Films trademark. It covers:
Animated motion picture films featuring entertainment, namely, action, adventure, dramatic, comedic, children's and documentary themes; pre-recorded video discs and other pre-recorded digital and electronic media in the field of live action programs, motion pictures, or animation featuring entertainment, namely, action, adventure, dramatic, comedic, children's and documentary themes."
But if you've got the time and the inclination, you should read the tangled web System Link Alt has woven to get to that point, a rich tapestry of deduction and good old-fashioned sleuthing. In fact, we'd like to suggest Rockstar's first film be an adaptation of how SystemLink Alt cracked the case. It'll basically be like All the President's Men with fewer ugly suits.
