Are folks from trademarks@ on this list?  Seems like an TM issue to me.

Subject: Re: "Modified Apache 2.0 License"

Hi,

I think there may be a minor/community issue including directly “Apache License” in the
name.
They are free to modify the license however they want as long as it’s clearly
indicated, but socially I would hope they would come up with a more distinct name than
“modified” Apache License 2.0.

Cheers,
Chris

For anyone wondering what the modification is, it's this addition to section 4.

What's the proposed problem with this? people can license stuff however they want. Is the
question reusing the license text itself?

Hi all

Just stumbled up this „Modified Apache 2.0 License“: https://github.com/wg/wrk/blob/master/LICENSE<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2Fwg%2Fwrk%2Fblob%2Fmaster%2FLICENSE&data=02%7C01%7C%7C751be93446e14f06647608d49ec274c2%7Cfa7b1b5a7b34438794aed2c178decee1%7C0%7C0%7C636308005408815756&sdata=by%2FL%2FXeseIV4GW4Ss1gu6OeU5G504SILeI2xbTCTG4A%3D&reserved=0>

Is there anything to be done about this ?
