If FSF had the foresight to trademark Free Software™ and Open Source™ we wouldn't have this sort of confusion.

The OSI tried and failed to trademark "Open Source". It failed because it was too generic IIRC.

Trademark law isn't needed. There isn't really any disagreements over the terms "Free (as in freedom) Software" or "Open Source".
