Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 119067] New:
Date Wed, 14 Mar 2012 22:02:49 GMT

             Bug #: 119067
        Issue Type: DEFECT
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: trademark
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: CONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: improper-use

Offers download of "OpenOffice", but the link actually downloads an installer
app that installs various sponsored offers, like "PartyPoker".  

Two potential trademark isues:

1) Their website and the file name downloaded suggest that the user is
downloading "OpenOffice", but that is not what they are downloading, at least
not initially.

2) Domain name "" suggests endorsement or affiliation with the
OpenOffice project.

Combined these are likely confusing to the consumer and falsely imply the
identity and source of their goods.
