Trademark fighting usually means that the loser changes name of its stuff. Don't worry, MS needs its cloud services too much to close them just because of the wrong name.

It's why disabling Sky-Drive was the very first thing I did when installing 8.1

They'll most likely change the name like they did with the old Windows 8 'Metro' interface.

One thing that I do known is that companies can't trademark letters which is probably why you see a lot of 'i' things around since apple can't trademark.

I wouldn't blame you for disabling/ Uninstalling skydrive desktop as a mesh/ sync service would often drag performance down,
Skydrive as a whole is as Advertising free as it gets/ Zero adds/ Free 7 gig's for new accounts 25 gig's free space for existing Hotmail.com accounts !
Uploads Original size files, No other service offers this to free accounts that I've found,
I have yet to see a free and more than generous file sharing site offer more without upgrading to a paid for account ?
Skydrive as a manual go to site is awesome/ add to favorites bar...
Skydrive as in Metro/ probably not so great
