    Anyone else noticed that Oakley has registered trademarks on only a few of their lenses. For example, on my Juliet boxes Black, Violet, and Ruby iridium have a registered trademark symbol after it and state 'Iridium' after the color. While other lenses like Ice, Emerald, and Fire don't. So anyone know why? Who does own the registered trademark? @kronin323 on your "free" time ;), I'm sure you could find something about this.

    Without looking, I'd guess it's the word "iridium" that's trademarked, not the actual color name. Like unobtainum, o-matter, and plutonite.

    I don't know why Ice, Emerald, and Fire don't state iridium; they all have iridium coatings.

    Interesting observation. Never noticed. Will have to check this out.
