Reading a post on Boingboing pointing out that God is a registered trademark, I was reminded of one of those little bits of information I assimilated along the way, but that was usually of little significance. Namely, that “Let There Be Light” is a registered trademark of Business Objects, which is owned by SAP.

So if you didn’t have a good enough reason not to use god®’s name in vein, now you do.
