trademark is used to allow the consumers not to be fooled about the quality of a product. By placing a trademark very similar to the Paramount Pictures one in a DVD of another company, the consumers could potentially be fooled. Thus it would potentially be a trademark violation. By doing it in Inkscape, which is something from a totally distinct field, cannot fool anybody, so there is no problem in making such a reference.

Also, Trademarks are enforceable only in their specific fields of the market.
