I'm not a lawyer either, but perhaps I know a tad more about
trademarks.  In this case, it *is* possible that confusion 
could arise because the owner of the trademark already operates
in the same business area as Python... "software".  There's
no definite yes or no without much more information, *and* 
a real lawyer.  :-)
