Just imagine if Canon wanna make Nikon pissed, and trademark all whole numbers, since D1-3 is used, they go trademark D4-9, and then D1a-z without the x... its going to be rather funny... all of us will run out of words to write.
or maybe lets think... Anyone trademarked say 2000AD? or AD2000? probably a nice number to trademark, no?
Nope, there is a recent court case between Mcdonald and McCurry(indian restaurant), claiming Mc is belongs to Mcdonald. Mcdonald lost in the case.
