Tetris packages - need a less-trademarked name



[ I'm forwarding this to the debian-devel list, since that's a better
  place to discuss it. ]

We've got zillions of tetris and tetris-like games.  What should we
relabel/rename them as?  T*tris, tetris-like, ???

Cheers,

 - Jim

I just got a nasty letter from a lawyer about the Tetris trademark.
They are upset about files on our ftp server, ftp.cdrom.com.  Many of
the files are in the Debian mirror.

You should delete these files.  We have temporarily disabled the mirroring,
so as soon as these are deleted, please send email and we will re-enable the
mirror.

Anything using the word "Tetris" should go.  If they are checking our
ftp-site, they are probably checking others, so if you can get your site
cleaned up before they get to it, it will save you some legal hassles.
