Is GNU/Linux a Trademark Violation?

“Linux is a registered trademark of Linus Torvalds and is
administered by the Linux Mark Institute (www.linuxmark.org). The
LMI will grant sub-licenses of the Linux trademark to businesses
and groups that want to use the word Linux in their product.

“When you refer to registered trademarks you are supposed to use
the ® symbol, or at the very least attribute the mark to its
owner. The folks over at GNU don’t do this, if you check out
www.gnu.org, there is no mention that Linux is a registered
trademark, and they do not make any attempt to attribute the mark
to Linus…”
