My apologies... Frank paints a more accurate picture of the trademark

Hi,

it's critical, I would say. They canceled the registration just today [1],
but there are still copyrights for name parts like  "S-Bahn Halleipzig". I
would remove it from the voting list to prevent us from trouble. S-Bahn is
not really a location in Berlin. If it does, S-Bahn is broken ;-)

kind regards

Frank (from Berlin)
