Trademarks and scoped so that they refer to a particular field of
endevaor or class of products. In this case, the application would
cover the use the word Rosetta to cover:

  Computer software, computer code, computer firmware and application
  tools for testing, converting, programming and executing computer
  software, computer code and computer applications across software,
  computer and microprocessor platforms; software technology used for
  cross-platform computing, software code verification, testing and

It seems that our use of the Rosetta mark covers this as does several
other uses of the term in other software products.
