Well, speaking of common words being trademarked (not patented, you can't patent words) Apple just bought the rights to the word "Lightning" from Harley Davidson. I assume they bought the rights to the term "Thunderbolt" a while ago. God knows they have a trademark now on "Retina".

I /assume/ those trademarks are only valid within the same category of products. I could, say, make a line of....I don't know, cookware, and use the term Lightning with impunity.
