offtopic: Linux (R) (TM) as a trademark ?

some weeks before, I tried to register a "linux" domain here in austria.
the administrator denied that, he said that "linux" is a trademark and
thus there would arise legal problems using that name. Hrmpf.

does anyone have the email address of the company or person who
registered "linux" as a trademark ? I would nicely ask for a written
permission to use that name for DNS purposes....
