(Newser) – Here's hoping you've had a healthy helping of the letter "H" already, because Arianna Huffington may soon own it. OK, so that’s exaggerating—a lot—but Gawker is still in a tizzy over two new trademarks filed by the Huffington Post in December. The first seems pretty fair: It protects "the letter H inside a square with rounded corners." But the second reserves "the letter H with a broad solid line below" it. So you can use an H. Just not one that's underlined.
