I don't think we need to worry about the color blue we used so far.

http://wwwtesting.kde.org/ uses #3E91EB
which breaks down into (dec.values 0-255):
red: 62, green: 145, blue: 235 or
hue: 150, saturation: 207, lightness: 149

http://www.microsoft.com/ uses #1478EB
which breaks down into:
red: 20, green: 120, blue: 235 or
hue: 150, saturation: 215, lightness: 128

So the pseudo scientific conclusion would be that both colors by far aren't
similar since KDE's "Royal Blue" uses more than three times as much red as
Microsoft Corp. uses in its local American website.

How specific are "color trademarks" regarding the protected colors? I'd
expect them to be exact RGB values, not some blurry specification...
