Trend trademarks the plate that’s in my leg

The Periodic Table partly confirmed what some alchemists thought – that metallic elements are in some way related.

For example, in the New Pearl of Great Price by Bonus of Ferrara (Vincent Stuart edition, 1963) we see: “In the generation of metals, all common metals are potentially what gold is actually; they are imperfectly what gold is perfectly; they are substantially what gold is formally.”  The original work was published by the Aldus press in 1546, financed by Pope Paul III and Venice.

We found it a bit strange when O2 decided to call itself O2 – that is trademarked apparently.

But we find it even stranger that AV company Trend Micro has decided to trademark the word Titanium – pictured here.

Next, you’ll be finding Intel trying to trademark the letter “i” or numbers or something.

Yeah, so I can’t refer to the Titanium plate in my leg – the result of a motor bike accident in 1981 – without tagging TM behind it?

NEC was rightly parodied for attempting to trademark the word “tower” – a clearly visible and risible piece of stupidity. Next, Intel will be telling us that it is going to trademark Intel Hotels of Distinction.

Oh, it already did.
