The website http://www.cplusplus.com/ uses word cplusplus.

Is it ok if someone also use word cplusplus for blogging purpose in another extension?

I guess, word cplusplus is a common word in technical field, which can not be trademark, but I don't know if such law exists or not.

Could you please answer it?

Thanks in advance.

    To clarify, you want to know if "cplusplus" is a (registered) trademark? But you ask it because you want to discuss it. We can also answer whether you can discuss it, even if it is a trademark. Because I think it does not matter for you. – wimh Feb 12 at 7:29
  • Yes, I want to know that if "cplusplus" is a (registered) trademark?". I respect trademark law but isn't cplusplus common technical word (name of a programming language)? @wimh – Mithlesh Upadhyay Feb 12 at 7:40
  • I've also found that there are two more sites: cplusplus.org and cplusplus.me using same name cplusplus. – Mithlesh Upadhyay Feb 12 at 7:57
  • Two more: cplusplus.se and cplusplus.ir , one is suspended (reason unknown, may be copyright or trademark violation) @wimh . – Mithlesh Upadhyay Feb 12 at 8:04

    The language is C++, normally pronounced seeplusplus, and so cplusplus would be a natural way to write it. As far as I know, there is no other meaning for cplusplus. C++ is a very popular programming language, normally one of the top five languages on the Tiobe index, so the name is in very common use. – David Thornley Feb 12 at 16:40
