Users should report potential trademark misuses of the OFBiz marks to the
private list as explained here:

http://www.apache.org/foundation/marks/reporting#users

The OFBiz PMC, with the help of the Apache Trademarks group, is actively
working at protecting the project's marks by researching for and logging
potential misuses (the ones you have reported above will be added to the
list if not already there), reviewing and analyzing them and then privately
contacting the third parties for which the violations have been confirmed
(like we did with your site).
