Hi Andrea,

The text only concerns "PivotTable" written this way, not the concept of
Pivot Tables or their name.

Hm. The official USPTO record reads:

Word Mark       PIVOTTABLE

AFAIK, at least in Germany, this would mean that any use of similar
writings like "Pivot Table", "pivottable", "Pivot-Table",
"pIVOTTABLe" or whatever would require the permission from the owner
of the trademark.

In german law:
§ 9 (1) Nr. 2 MarkenG "Gefahr von Verwechslungen"
--> Likelihood of confusion

However, this is a US trademark. Maybe it´s different there.
