Thank you for sharing.

Went to a link in the comments and found that the name "Pentax is protected there till 30.09.2022. Hope, Ricoh hat this date in mind and will take steps to prolong their reiht to use the name, exclusvely.

Here the entry in the database:

Very interesting, because that "Pentax" patent belongs to Hoya, as they still make optical instruments under the name of Pentax. Whether there is another patent (Pentax brand name protection) registered by Ricoh, we have no clue. Maybe one day will Hoya bring Ricoh to court for violating the use of the Pentax name.
