Thoughts after that will be to get a usage policy built that is fairly simple but ensures that Adobe can't make "Adobe Inkscape" without asking us first :)
This is extremely unlikely. On the presumption that such a lawyer thing costs real money, perhaps you should to a threat analysis to determine what the real legal threats are to inkscape. I would suggest the accidental inclusion of patented or incorrectly licenced code is far more likely a problem, and such time would be better spent on that.
Realistically, a large corp wouldn't want the bad pr that came from stealing a well known name (and would most likely be immune from attack). Small operators rebadging inkscape or using the name are not worth the effort/cost of attacking - inkscape is a very well known brand and people would quickly socially discourage such behaviour.
