ZeniMax Trademarks Dragonborn

ZeniMax has filed a trademark for "Dragonborn", reports Fusible, noting that the parent of Skyrim developer Bethesda Softworks also recently trademarked the term "Fus Ro Dah" after the game's dragonborn shout. It's not clear if they intend to use these terms in game titles, if they are protecting their IP from exploitation by third-parties, or both. Thanks VG247.

Dragonborn appears in Dungeons and Dragons. How can they trademark that?

It's like tramemarking "elf"

I imagine they can trademark certain uses/appearances/flavors of 'dragonborn' (i.e. anything involving their IP) but not all of "dragonborn." As you say, Wizards of the Coast used it before Bethesda, and someone else probably had it in a book somewhere a few decades ago, as well.
