I remember in the early days of linux, they had a similar problem where people attempted to trademark the use of the word linux all around the world.

To combat this, the formed something along the lines of the linux foundation and trademarked it themselves.

Is anyone working along similar lines with Bitcoin? As someone who is working on setting up a business involving bitcoin, this uncertainty is disconcerting and I would be happy to work with and/or contribute to an organization that would help solidify the bitcoin name.

The Bitcoin software group, as an entity, should file for a trademark in as many countries as possible. They can then place this trademark under a usage license granting the right to use it to anyone in conjunction with the software, or, any other software implementing the same protocol and functionality, on the official blockchain.
