  A lawyer currently working in the Spanish translation team has just
 answered[1] telling us that with the Spanish laws, the previous use of a
 mark and the acceptation by the people who use it, invalidates the
 trademark. We only have to initiate a process to opposite to it.

  Related to this, perhaps we should try to fill a trademark
 registration valid in the most countries. At least I know that you can
 fill a patent in Europe valid in (at least) the UE countries. And
 perhaps we should try even to register it in more countries. IMHO, SPI
 should look into this.
