+
+From the Chair,
+
+[for file in the public PMC folder following PMC review and acceptance of any
+modifications]
+
+August 29, 2015
+
+I want to make it perfectly clear, in explicit terms, the principles and
+procedures for dealing with allegations/suspicions of the Apache OpenOffice
+trademark infringement (or "abuse") are.
+
+  1. Third parties with concerns about use of ASF marks are encouraged to
+ communicate their concerns and any clear-cut facts to private@ oo.o (and of
+ course trademark@ a.o).  Any follow-up will occur privately to establish the
+ necessary details.
+
+  2. Members of the PMC who see a trademark issue are expected to follow the
+ same procedure, bringing the facts of the matter to private discussions,
+ analysis and determination of disposition.
+
+  3. Public statements from PMC members alleging infringing acts and expected
+ remedies are unwelcome.  There can be unfortunate consequences.  It is my
+ understanding that the Foundation cannot protect a PMC member who is so
+ exposed to repercussions from elsewhere.  In any case it reflects badly on
+ the Apache Software Foundation, the Apache OpenOffice project, who we say we
+ are and what can be counted on by the public.
+
+  4. When a trademark issue comes to the attention of the PMC from any source,
+ the PMC is expected to calmly and deliberately gather specific concrete and
+ visible details of the supposed current-and-ongoing infringing activity.  In
+ so doing, it will also be important to differentiate between matters of
+ trademark and matters of license handling by a downstream recipient or
+ distributor of code obtained from an Apache Project.
+
+  5. The PMC shall obtain the counsel of the Apache Vice President, Brand
+ Management, on the extent to which there is a trademark issue.
+
+  6. To the extent that other concerns and details must be severed from matters
+ of trademark, the PMC will remove them for separate consideration.  Only
+ elements of concern with respect to trademarks are continued under this
+ procedure.
+
+  7. If the PMC concludes, in clearly-focused deliberations, that there is
+ strong evidence of trademark infringement or other abuse of ASF marks, the
+ particulars and a request for action will be forwarded to the Apache Vice
+ President, Brand Management, as a formal request of the AOO PMC.  The AOO PMC
+ shall not take independent action nor speak in public on the matter.
+
+  8. As to Remedies.  If the Apache VP chooses to pursue the matter with some
+ specific third party, there is generally a simple request for remedy.  There
+ are often counter-offers and other discussion about what an acceptable remedy
+ might be.  In general, an acceptable remedy will be anything that cures the
+ asserted infringement to the satisfaction of the ASF, as delegated to the
+ Apache Vice President, Brand Management.
+
+  9. The PMC will be available to assist the VP Brand Management in any
+ determinations in this regard.  It is not for the Apache OpenOffice PMC to
+ assert remedies, penalties, or behaviors other than as advice requested from
+ the VP Brand Management.  It is sufficient that proposed modifications remove
+ the trademark infringement as determined by the VP Brand Management.  Factors
+ unrelated to trademark do not enter into this matter.
