Re: Using the Term Debian, DWN 04Jan05 - www.debianshop.com
Just to add to this info, Debianshop has the same contact details (address, phone)
as CheapLinux (www.cheaplinux.com) which incidentally recognises the Linux
trademark by adding at the bottom of all its pages: 'Linux is a trademark of Linus
Torvalds. All trademarks acknowledged.'
sorry for the linebreaks, i thought they were added,

the www.debianshop.com which is 'For everything Debian'. The 'Announcement
About the Debian Trademark' insists that 'no business use the name "Debian" in
the name of the business, or a domain name of the business'. Even if Debianshop
is initially OK by using a portmanteau version of the word (Debian+shop) it misleads
- on the top of its website - by breaking it back to two separately sized/fonted words
with multiple spaces in between or even in different lines. Only by reaching the
bottom of the page tiny disclaimer 'Debianshop is not officially related to the Debian
project' did I realise that the site was not a debian.org shop.
Could you repeat the mail (with inserted linebreaks though) to
email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org -- or give
permission to me forwarding it to debian-legal.
There are lies, statistics and benchmarks.
