common use and prior art.

There are dozens of poems titled "Winter is coming" and the phrase has been used in many novels, tv series and movies, all created many many years before Game of thrones was shat out, and all of which make money.

HBO can fuck right off. Any court challenge where the judge hasn't been bought off would kick HBO in the balls.
