Okay, it probably only means other package delivery services, but WTF?

Trademarks are for very limited purposes. A rolling-papers company owns "1.5" but you can still use it for equations and things.

*nods* I do know that, but I still suffer a brain-twitch whenever I see trademarks or service marks attached to everyday words and phrases (I remember that Carl's Jr. had a service mark for "Where do you want to eat?"), or, as here, a common color.
