It’s some level of legal bullshit like licensing the SCP Foundation claiming it as your own (which actually happened), and I don’t even know how the law firm got it. even entered into the trademark agreement of the thing in the first place.

Not that it makes bomb threats any more appropriate for anyone involved in it. But yeah, my guess is that often these attorneys look at the client’s claim and don’t know enough about the particular sub-community to realize that it’s flimsy. And/or assume no one will argue with it even if it IS fragile, as this process tends to get involved.

The same “failing to do due diligence on someone trying to trademark a niche you don’t really know well” that seems to have led to VERY weird trademark attempts in the US.
LeBron James tried to file a “Taco Tuesday” trademark quite recently. Lol
