Well, you register trademarks per country, so that would be one way, I guess...

 During my stay at EuroPython I learned that eighteen

 trademark consisting of the Cirlce-Z (the stylized Z
 surrounded by a circle) followed by the word ZOPE
 (hereinafter Circle-Z-Zope).  The mark they
 registered is identical to the corporate logo used by
 Zope Corporation.
 

At the Zope Europe Association Web site
(http://www.zope-europe.org/), the logo is 3 cubes with a
3-dimensional look.  Has Zope Europe Association registered the
Circle-Z-Zope trademark but is not using it?  Or is there another
Zope Europe Association?  Or, have they registered it for future
use?  Or, if you can register a trademark in different countries,
have they registered it so as to protect it from miss-use by
someone else?

In the three weeks since learning of ZEA's illegitimate
registration of our marks we have tried diligently (but
unsuccessfully) to get ZEA to unconditionally transfer
the rights of the registration.



Isn't this really strange? How can ZEA register any ZC trademark?!
Either ZC is the owner of the trademarks including Europe or it isn't?!
So either ZEA is violating the ZC trademark rights knowingly or ZC maybe 
never had any registered trademarks in Europeyou someone please clarify 
this (Paul?).
