Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Apache Mayhem proposal
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2012 13:27:08 GMT
Good morning President :)

Gianugo pointed me to the homepage of Make Mayem[1] and I found a
trademarked software[2] which is called Mayhem as well.
Trademarkia shows that more than 10 pages of results of products are
registered with the name "Mayhem", which I suspect is a daily used
word in English language, especially in the US.

Giving an overview:

 * _Make Mayhem_ is an application that lets you connect trigger
events to reactions. Unlike writing a program, you simply select an
event and a reaction, and then turn on the connection. Voila! No code
or app required.

 * _Mayhem_ is a computer software for use in the encryption and
decryption of digital files, including audio, video, text, binary,
still images, graphics and multimedia files

 * _Apache Mayhem_ aims to create a community focused on the
development and maintenance of a set of Google Guice extensions

My question - IANAL and don't aim to be :P - is: where the legal
issues comes out? We don't aim to "invade" someone else's domain...
If the Mayhem is a trademark by Grey Heron Technologies, LLC for a
software, aren't Outercurve's guys violating a TM?

Sorry if asking silly questions, many thanks in advance!
best,
-Simo
