The LINUX Trademark

Here is an article from Sourceforge regarding the status of the LINUX trademark.  What is doesn’t make clear enough is that Linus Torvarlds, author of the LINUX operating system, owns a registered trademark 1916230 for LINUX, and all other things being eqaul, third parties cannot own trademarks incorproating that term for goods and services realted to operating systems.  Do a metasearch of the term LINUX to see how many applications will be rejected.
