I Don't Believe in Imaginary Property writes: "PJ of Groklaw has written in more detail about the lawyer trying to get a servicemark the term cyberlaw. First, she notes that it's only a trademark application at this point. Furthermore, it's a generic term with 300,000+ hits on Google and an entry in some dictionaries and reference sites. In other words, while it's silly for a law firm that should know better to file a trademark application, it shouldn't and probably won't be granted if the law is followed. Still, it's interesting because it shows the difference between trademarks and servicemarks, as well as explaining the law surrounding them. A law which is significantly different than copyright law."
