'Kpop' wasn't the only term to be supposedly trademarked, so were 'Toronto Kpop Con' and 'Kpop Con,' which have now allegedly become properties of Gerald Belanger. It's strange to think that the patent and trademark office would actually approve this since 'Kpop' is a term that has been around since even well before 'Pop! Goes The World!' was established.
Quick, someone coin another short, convenient term for 'Korean Pop'! And no, 'KPoop' is not an option.
