It may be worth noting, or not, that they did get sued. Sometimes 
lawyers will advise to sue to establish a precedent of defending their 
trade mark. Undefended trade marks become harder to defend and risk 
becoming public domain.

Just my non-professional understanding and I could be wrong.

It may be worth considering how willing you would be to defend the name 
if sued. Personally I think you should be fine but what do I know.
