I seem to recall that SSH Communications threw a fit over people using
the (trademarked?) name of their product to describe compatible
implementations, such as OpenSSH or LSH.  Meanwhile, the protocol
defined by the IETF documents is actually called SECSH (SECure SHell).

This is from memory and I'm not sure how SSH Communications's threats
against OpenSSH played out.  Anyone able to update me?
