The fact that new video releases of Godzilla '98, printed years after "Zilla" appeared in Final Wars, still list the monster as "Godzilla" in the Toho copyright (both character and design) means that yes, it is in writing. Toho, a company that is fanatical about their trademarks, is still copyrighting the monster in the TriStar movie as "Godzilla", and they have been right along.
The only use of the "Zilla" character remains Final Wars.
And that's because the monster seen in Final Wars isn't the monster from the Tristar film. I don't get why this is ever up for debate.
