"Candle Power" + Guitar lawsuit/legal question

Remember when PRS released the Silver Sky? It's similarities to a Fender Stratocaster were a frequent topic Paul Reed Smith would address in interviews. It became clear that Paul is not allowed to use the words "Fender" or "Stratocaster." If there was smack talk involved I could understand why, but there was never any smack talk, just normal talk. Why can't PRS say the words "Fender" or "Stratocaster?"

I noticed the guitar Steve is playing looks suspiciously like a Fender Silver Sky...

Just, amazing. I have no idea what I just saw and heard but I want to be able to do that.

Clearly, the only way to do so, is to buy more gear
