http://www.dcbrewlaw.com/?p=831 Kind of a cool read though it sounds like the author is against AB/Inbev. Not sure how I feel about these trademarks regarding what I consider more of a style description. Could somebody try to have the trademark on "chocolate stout" or "india pale lager?" Hell, who made the first saison? Could they claim rights to the term? Trademark law is not something I know much about but I do find it to be an interesting topic.
