Subject: WRONG -- it's trademarked multiple times

Message:
 

 
       Almost every generic and place names can be trademarked.  Using the US Trademark office site, I can see that the exact word "hawaii" is trademarked at least 8 times.  And in other countries, it can be trademarked too-each country has their own rules.
Go to the Trademark Office site, with search term="hawaii" and field="full mark" and you can see the registrations.  All of which qualify for a Sunrise name.
