Important note: I'm not a lawyer.

Trademarks aren't a problem, the problem comes from the trademark
*policy*. As an example, we have Mozilla's which limits or forbids
selling copies of the original software (the trademark policy given as
example might also have other problems that I'm unaware of).

Although I don't know what you mean by "releasing the trademark under
the GPL".

Perhaps there are lawyers that might be able to help. I don't know if
these have lawyers, but it's worth mentioning:

- Software Freedom Conservancy: <>.
- Software Freedom Law Center: <>.

Also, the last one has an interesting guide that talks about trademarks:
