    Fine artists and other small producers for whom copyright is an important protection are getting royally screwed by everyone only focusing on technology and industrial giants. If I spend several weeks to complete a painting for which I am paid very little if I manage to sell it, and then some asshole comes along and copies it claiming fair use, I just want to wrap my little fingers around his neck and shake him all the while screaming "fuck you!" "fuck you!". Not everyone is a tech giant and not everyone's work should be free for the stealing.

    can't copyright a common word

    You can't copyright a common word. It follows that you should not be able to trademark one either. Also, the Kentucky University's logic would imply that the State of Kentucky is also infringing their "trademark" as well as the Federal Government and anyone else using the word Kentucky in any documentation whatsoever. Ridiculous.
