Subject Re: [DISCUSS] New Logo
Date Tue, 29 Mar 2011 13:51:17 GMT
Rob, I *always* wear an Apache hat on this list. And I don't appreciate cheap innuendoes. Please
feel free to point to any instance in the past when it wasn't the case. Until then please
choose your words carefully.

The Camel project, or any project, or any organization cannot use a mark that would create
confusion, registered or not. Or so I was told by an attorney friend who is not involved with
ASF, but I should probably take it with the ASF legal to confirm. I am not sure how aware
you are of it, but the ASF is putting more emphasis lately on enforcing the trademark policy.
Trademarks compliance should also be part of the quarterly report.
