Futuremark wants to trademark PWNAGE

Bit Tech spotted Futuremark is trying to trademark "PWNAGE":
If it is approved, Futuremark's request will cover an extremely wide slice of the digital entertainment market, including (but not limited to) the following:

"Computer game software for communication devices; computer game software and computer game programs enabling users to play games with mobile phones and personal digital assistants; computer software and programs enabling users to communication devices to simultaneously access databases and global computer networks; software enabling transfer of data between mobile communication apparatus..."

What's interesting is that one of the requests is for "Computer software development," so one has to assume this is something related to the recent Futuremark Game Studios announcement.
Pretty silly attempt and I doubt their request has any chance of getting approved.
