The company Orange tried to do the same thing with that colour too w.r.t all orange coloured consumer goods. Didn't work tho. What they mean and should have written is that the T logo *in* the colour magenta is trademarked.

It used to annoy me the way MS used to use very simple names for all their stuff to try to get total dominance - think of Paint, Word, and even Windows. The problem now is that with the internet, if you type in 'word' into google you get a squillion hits of everything and their product is watered down in amongst it. I reckon the whole deal has backfired.

Hey! I just like the color Mr. Robes. And, you know, I'll give you a free five year license to use the color on your robes as a gesture of camaraderie.

I'm cool that way
