Hello,

Your points are on target. Trademarks that specify single real dictionary words, or common phrases (like "time will tell") are not valid except to the extent of distinctive fonts in the company logo. Trademark registrants need to use common sense about what is in the public domain, and not rely on faulty USPTO decisions (these will not hold up in a court challenge).
