Levittown, PA asked in Intellectual Property and Trademark for Pennsylvania

Q: I want to make YouTube videos. Would the name "Postscript" infringe on any trademarks?

I want my YouTube channel name to be called "Postscript." I'll be making video essays in which I'll review, offer critique, and discuss my opinion on various pieces of media, such as films, television shows, anime, video games, etc. I liked the name because it's as if my review/analysis is happening "post the script having been written," which I feel is a fun play on words. The word "postscript" is also the official title for the "PS" that would go in a letter.

However, I'm concerned that a company, primarily Adobe, could see this as trademark infringement. These links are the trademarks I'm worried about in particular:

A: Hello there, you should discuss this with intellectual property lawyer in your area as there is a need for trademark search first for potential infringement of prior rights. Your question can not be duly answered without that. I wish you a good luck with your YouTube channel though.
