And I can think of other items with two of the ubiquitous letter x in a row, too--some that have been doing it more years than the oil company has been around and thus would be expected to have greater claim to the ownership, if anyone has it.

They can register and patent that version of the XX within their name brand but any lawsuit that challenges the right of other companies to use XX in a different format and name brand is arrogant; myopic and creates bad business relations. Plus, infringement of copyright which is what this amounts to is highly illegal and Exxon should really make sure they know what they're doing. Any judge that supports this sophomoric claim should be immediately disbarred as should any judge that favors giving the same rights to corporations as humans. A corporation is comprised of and operated by humans but it is not a living, breathing entity per se.

I will say something about them that I used to say about my Pomeranian-although when I said it about him it was in a humorous manner. I used to say that it was lucky his ego was not a tangible object because it would never fit in my house. I love him dearly. Exxon is just way too full of themselves as are those other fools who think they own names. Really, all of you-just get over yourselves.

Klaus? Why would you buy BP, they're even worse than Exxon. And for that matter, Shell has been a terrorist organization for 100 years. Citgo and Marathon are better places to buy.

Really, I can see tham trademarking the "Croix de Lorraine" version of the XX that they use, although even then in their place I would think twice because of all the jokes that can be made about "double cross" with it. But just the double X? Oh, come on. Honestly, if this gets any supider we will all have to refrain from saying "triple W" and maybe say "sextuple U" instead.
