A while back someone trademarked the name for the river tables as his own, preventing others from using the name to sell or advertise their own works. I think the guy got taken to court but not positive on that. It got alot of kick back from the woodworking community and rightly so in my personal opinion.

@Mikhail2400 explained it well. The person actually trademarked the word "river" related to wood products, as in "river table." He claims to be the originator of the "river table." By trademarking it, nobody else can sell "river tables" or "river" anything related to wood.

There is prior use to show that he did not originate the name or idea.

I hope Mikhail2400 is correct that someone decided to fight the trademark. I worry that the person who trademarked "river" will get away with it because nobody has the energy or resources to fight it. I hope there is an angel somewhere who is willing to stand up for all of us.

I was joking about @justdraftn trying to trademark "MC Escher" with wood products. It should be obvious that it won't happen in real life.
