One must be careful here that the Foundation does not exceed its
statutory and legal obligations - collecting a percentage of monies
raised by local associations for the use of TDF/LIbO trademarks could be
seen as trademark licensing in some jurisdictions, which may or may not
be permitted under law.
thanks for the hint - didn't take that into account.
IMHO, our trademark policiy is not officially in effect yet. What shall
we reply to Daniel Gonzalez (who asked on the US marketing list) for
now? Anyone has an idea?
My take is that temporarily, it is okay to use our logo, if they do not
claim collecting on behalf of TDF. This however is only temporary, until
our TM policy and a subsequent policy on fundraising is in effect.
