The word "evergreen" has been trademarked since 2007 by Ryan Giggs. Consequentially, no other player may be called evergreen while Ryan Giggs is still playing football in the Premiership. For a while Ryan Giggs also had a trademark on the phrase "veteran playmaker" however, a recent challenge by Paul Scholes has seen this over turned. See also: Talismanic and Steven Gerrard.
