I'm an international student working in the US with GSoC.  Because of
that I have to do all kinds of fun paperwork to be all legit and
whatnot.  Anyhow, what's the status on the name Pidgin and Finch?  Am
I to use TM with their names in the paperwork I file?  I'm not asking
you guys in terms of the requirement of my paperwork, I'm asking as to
the status of using a trademark for the names Pidgin and Finch.
