Quick question on trademarks.

If you search many of the Apache project names, they are trademarked to 
gezoo, however
if you search "Apache XXX" it cleans up. Once/one day when the project 
graduates from
Incubator it will also be "Apache XXX" which is unique.

How is this different from any of the other names in Apache that are 
highly trademarked without
the "Apache" qualifier?

Comments please - what is the policy?
