Also, you need to file within a year of the technology becoming public knowledge.

The value of bitcoins is not a theory, predictions of it's failure are what is theoretical.

I think all of you are missing the point here. Bitcoin does not need a trademark, and it never will. Let 100 lawyers file all they want, it does not matter. Imagine lawyer got his patent granted tomorrow - what he gonna do? All he gets is favor from government(s). Bitcoin is not created or run by governments, so good luck enforcing your so-called "right". And if government(s) decide to shut it down, that's what they will try to do anyway, patent or no patent.

It'd be like me trying to copyright the bible.
So completely feasible and done by multiple entities?

(First off, there's a Crown Copyright that never expires on the King James Version in the UK; that particular version has fallen into public domain in the US and most of the world.  Though, new "translations" are almost always held under copyright.)

I think of an established company within the Bitcoin economy (tradehill, gox, bit-pay, bitcoin forums) were to patent bitcoin on behalf of the community and somehow place a clause making it open to be used for everyone.

How much would this cost, I know a bunch of patent lawyers. I'm gonna look into this.

Look I'm the guy that discovered the initial trademark filing

https://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=26527.0

The term is common already,  it's been in use for years now.   I personally object to ANYONE holding a trademark of it.    It's akin to someone trademarking the term "US DOLLAR" or something along those lines.

I believe that the term is already common and cannot be trademarked as it's already a common name... period.
