According to the website for the open-source group, GNOME Foundation, Groupon recently confirmed it will abandon all 28 of their pending trademark applications for the trademark GNOME and will change its name for Groupon's new tablet and related software.  Over the past year, Groupon has filed several trademark applications with the USPTO for the mark GNOME (including several different variations, such as G-NOME, G.NOME, G NOME AND GNOME BY GROUPON).  The trademarks were allowed by the USPTO, but still subject to third party opposition.  In order to file an opposition to 10 applications by December 3rd, GNOME started an online donation site to raise $80k and public awareness.  According to GNOME's website, it raised over $100k before Groupon decided to abandon its trademark applications.  See
