Interestingly, I have it on good authority that in terms of trademarks,
eszett and ss are treated the same -- that is, in trademark lingo, a phrase
that only differed by exchanging these characters from a trademark would
infringe that trademark.

As a side note, there are many, many English trademarks that cannot be
expressed literally as IDNs. Just a small sampling:

Baker’s Choice
Ben & Jerry’s
Lands’ End
Spray ’n Wash
Uncle Ben’s
