Before we rename anything, surely we should check whether there really is
a trademark infringement?
The mere fact of using a name is not - in itself - an infringement.
A trademark can be used without conflict if applied to something in
a different category (at least, so I understand UK law).
Remember the Linux trademark fuss?
