Subject Apachelounge has to remove Apachelounge Feather, be warned
Date Sun, 19 Aug 2007 09:49:10 GMT
I like to inform you all, just for the complete picture.  There is more then
the RC issue in the other thread.

On request I have to remove the Feather, see the mail below.

So other Apache Community sites are warned. And maybe customer sites with
the Apache logo must be warned.

Till now I was thinking that we where  a friends Community in sake of Open
Source.

Correct me if I wrong, but sometimes I have the feeling that ASF and/or
Covalent Technologies are not happy with the Apache Lounge. And like Tom
said before: sounds a bit more territorial than legal   to me. Maybe 
Covalent Technologies is also  trying to protect there position as 
distributor ?

So I will keeping www.apachelounge.com down , I do not not want to much
hassle to sort out  the issues addressed here.

The forum www.apachelounge.com/forum/ shall I keep up for some time, so
users can read the posts.

Steffen

Subject: ASF issues with your site

I'd like to bring one other issue to your attention for a prompt resolution.

On the subject of the Apache mark, I note that your site uses the ASF
feather.  Please note that this is the ASF's mark and cannot be used
without explicit permission.  Also, you have used the Apache name
without a clear disclaimer that your site is not affiliated with the
Apache Software Foundation or the Apache httpd project.

If you would please remove the Apache feather, and indicate the site is
not affiliated with the Apache Software Foundation nor the Apache httpd
Server Project, I believe this would address all of the Foundation's
concerns.

For example, if your donation banner read

"This site is not affiliated with the Apache Software Foundation or
the Apache httpd Project.  The site is funded entirely by me (Steffan).
By donating you will help keep this site alive and well!"

it should clarify the second issue and avoid anyone confusing your site
with the Foundation.

If you have any questions about the use of the feather or the Apache
name, please pose them to our Public Relations Committee, prc@apache.org.
They are happy to answer any questions
