...or you can just buy the licence.

So if you type a yellow "m" then you have to pay two licence fees! This could get expensive!

If you want to read up on an interesting case of white collar douche baggery look up "EDGE gaming". Cadbury has a similar trademark on the colour purple which they use on a lot of their products, here in Australia.

Hehe, It's almost a pity China doesn't give a rat's a** about trademarks.

I thought Sesame Street held the trademark to the alphabet letters.

K is for kangaroo, hop hop. L is for laugh, so funny, haha. M is for M&M’s® (© 2013, Mars™, Inc.) (Used under license). N is for nose, long or short.

Upon indepth review of this, I have come to the conclusion, that Mars Inc., has only the trade mark for "M'S" (M with the apostrophe. As long as you use an "M" without the apostrophe, you're good.

You can't really trademark a letter. All that this means is that if you sell similar food products, you can't advertise them in the M&M font and color theme *and* name them "m", "m's", "MM-lings", or any variation thereof. In other words, the trademark only protects the trademark holder against people who try to pass off their product as his. You can still sell cans of beans under the name "Uncle M's" or whatever, provided that the brand logo looks sufficiently different.

Sad truth is that Monster Energy Drink is suing a fishkeeping forum Monsterfishkeepers.com because they used a stylized version of the letter M as their logo. I wonder why Monster and M&Ms don't sue each other then.
