Have you seen the letters 'TM' on the larger sized versions (48x48 and up) of the DWG file icon that ships with AutoCAD 2009?

In another TM-claim-by-stealth approach, Autodesk's documentation now does not separate the lists of registered and non-registered trademarks.

If you look at the front of an older manual, there are two lists, and "DWG" is in neither of them. Things like "DXF", "DWF" and "DWG Linking" are there, though, in the unregistered trademark list.

Look in 2009's Help About and you will find "The following are registered trademarks or trademarks of Autodesk, Inc., in the USA and other countries:" with "DWG" and "DWG (logo)" among the ambiguously listed items.
