The Stealth Trade-mark

A few sources are commenting on the Chicago man who claims to have a trade-mark in the word "stealth", and has a habit of sueing anyone who uses it. The problem is that a trade-mark is only for the specific wares or services you use if for, not for the word in general. Apparently some defendants have settled with him to avoid litigation despite this fact.

The articles make for interesting reading.
