Do you really think that we'll hear from them again?  Even if the same
company needed permission from us again (unlikely) the chances are
that we'd get a request from a different employee.  Taking time to
explain the technical limitations of our mailing list to a random
office worker is not an investment that will ever pay off.

All that is happening is we're delaying getting this request to the
party that actually has the authority to grant permission, namely V.P.
Branding,  Since the trademarks@ mailing list does accept attachments,
isn't the easiest resolution to ask them to forward their request to
trademarks@ ???
