Re: Firefox/Thunderbird trademarks: a proposal
Michael K. Edwards wrote lots of convincing arguments and then said:
In this factual setting, I think it's wisest for everyone to
fall back to trademark statute if the agreement falls apart.
Fair enough. I'm convinced :-)
Replace "the name of the package will have to be changed in all
as-yet-unreleased versions of Debian" with "permission to use the
trademarks will be withdrawn for all as-yet-unreleased versions of Debian".
That should deal with the issue were MJ felt it was more like a contract
than a permissions grant.
