I wasn't suggesting the Mageia invest in such..I just wanted to show that the Owner of Mageia.com and his mining company currently does not own any trademark patent copyright etc.
I'm not a lawyer but if he did apply now I don't think he could then turn around and to what the owners of Mandrake the Magician did to Mandrake Linux.

It is possible to register a trademark using uspto.gov. The cost is between
$275 and $325 per class. For a trademark like Mageia there are several classes
in which it fits (let's say 3 classes), so the cost is between $825 and $975
(just for US protection if i get it right)
That a nice cost for a project that also needs servors, hosting, etc.
