[steering-discuss] Re: Trademark Policy of the Document Foundation


Le 28/01/11 13:47, Michael Meeks a écrit :


I might add that "non-commercial" use of a trademark is also, in some
jurisdictions, not considered to be an activity that infringes a
trademark holder's rights. One of the basic rules is whether there is a
risk of confusion in the buying public's mind / eye between the alleged
infringing use and the legitimate use by the trademark right holder.
Since purely not for profit sites are not commercially driven, there is
an argument, upheld in some jurisdictions, that excludes trademark
infringement for that kind of use, irrespective of how close it appears
to get to the right holder's activities (as long as it remains
non-commercial).
