Hi Jon,

Is it true that the Linux Mark Institute wants to charge non-profits
US $200 per year to use the word Linux in their names? That's the
impression I get from the form here:

http://www.linuxmark.org/forms/linux_licence_doc.html#Check1

If this is the case, could you ask LMI and/or OSDL to reconsider this
move? It could be seen as a tax by OSDL's corporate founders on
Linux-related groups around the world.

Perhaps there should be a turnover cut-off, eg organisations with less
than US $100,000 annual turnover don't have to pay.

Cheers!

Daniel
