Comment: re trademark (Score 1) 117

by wixi (#22906212) Attached to: Open Source Business Model Using Software Patents
is "copyleft" trademarked? what if an organized group confused the public as to the meaning of "copyleft"?.. trademarks are about reputation, which may be less of a product and more of an ongoing process.. less of a noun and more of a verb.. trademarks currently are strongest when they modify nouns, ie this is a google(tm) version of search.. for example, the act of xeroxing (verb) dilutes the xerox(tm) copyright.. google lawyers fret about verbal use of "to google" this or that.. for example, google "barlow+economy+ideas".. so is trademark as sick as copyright and patent? do trademarks need to go verbal to deal with info processes? how do you wanna change trademark?

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
