Hi Jon,

I think that would be a good move. There's plenty of scope for
misunderstanding here.

Quite. My main concern is that legitimate non-profit groups are
dissuaded from having Linux in their name, which would obviously be
counterproductive.

I've done that today, and put in a link to linuxmark.org.

A suggestion: why not have someone connected to LMI write an article
about the defence of the Linux trademark, encouraging sites to adopt
the trademark statement (if they haven't done so already)? I can
suggest this to the editor of LinuxUser & Developer if you like. I
think it would be a good subject for a one page column (around 800
words).

> I beg to be quiet about this at this point so

Of course, that's why I contacted you instead of posting on
Slashdot :-)

Cheers!

Daniel
