Thanks for the responses. Couple quick notes:
I forgot to mention that this page is not promoting the trademarked  
service... it's just a name chosen based on content.
Also I'm not sure if the owner of the trademark will be happy with us  
simply using a redirect as one of their main concerns is that we show  
up first in Google...
