Oh, just the company... Hmmm. Isn't it a generic term? I've been familiar with machinima.com for some time, but did not realize that was their actual company name.

Could I start, for example, machinima.net? (I see it is for sale...)

Machima is a registered service mark by the company running machima.com. While machima.net is up for grabs, you can't use it to offer services similar to what Machima offers without attracting the attention of their legal department. For more details, you should consult a real lawyer that specializes in trademarks and service marks.
