Well if nothing else, this is the first time GW is getting some serious backlash more on the mainstage, other than the typical go nowhere nerd rage.

True. GW have been copyright trolling for a long time, and they aren't exactly known for originality themselves.

I may be wrong here, but isn't this the first time they've tried the IP bully trick on someone not a hobbyist / one of their own customers? Spots the Space Marine was entirely unrelated to their "property" - I'd guess that's a large part of why it got attention.
