Dear Brian,

I wonder how will be the cost of a registered trademark on the mid term, for
instance 5 or 10 years.  Will it trigger more payments to other offices,
similarly to our effort of maintaining "debian" domain names in multiple
top-level domains ?  Is the payment to be renewed periodically ?  In parallel,
since the assistance of SFLC is a resource that we can not expand nor buy with
money, will the possession of a registration trademark take a significant share
of the assistance we can receive ?

Have a nice day,
