What about the time between 1985 and 1998 (I think
that is when DMCH registered it)??

The trademark was PUBLIC DOMAIN for those years.
Therefore, a judge would likely rule the CLAIM
invalid.

Can't argue with that.  They probably do have the
legal right to say they own it, but is it ethical? is
it fair?  My point has always been that is the claim
were challenged in court (properly), DMCH would loose.
