Re: [OT] Harassment of open source developer !

Maybe I'm misremembering, but...

The real problem isn't even being mentioned in this thread.  The
developer of Killustrator is willing to change the name; the problem is
that the lawyers in Germany (possibly quite independently of Adobe) are
demanding lots of money from one of the developers, to "cover their
legal expenses".  This isn't a "Your program uses Adobe's trademark so
change the name" thing, this is a "Your program uses Adobe's trademark
so change the name and give us lots of money for the trouble of sending
you this notice even though you haven't been warned until now, and if
you don't give us the money we'll sue you for a lot more money."

"When you meet someone better than yourself, turn your thoughts to
becoming his equal. When you meet someone not as good as you are, look
within and examine your own self."
