[board-discuss] [DECISION] Updates to trademark policy


Hello,

the following decision, which was taken in private (by the previous board), is now made public in accordance with our statutes:

* Vote:
+ TM policy: change clause one of non-permitted use:
+ 1. append "for example by including the Marks
in the name of an application in an app store,
such as <i>LibreOffice packaged by Jane Bob</i>"
+ Prepend "Except as outlined below" to Permitted Use.
+ Create new licenses for C'bra and CIB to bridge TDC gap
+ for LibreOffice Vanilla in app-stores.
=> unanimous vote.

The Board of Directors at the time of voting consists of 7 seat holders without deputies. In order to be quorate, the vote needs to have 1/2 of the Board of Directors members, which gives 4.

A total of 7 Board of Directors members have participated in the vote. The vote is quorate.

A quorum could be reached with a simple majority of 4 votes.

Result of vote: unanimous approval.

Decision: The request has been accepted.
This message is to be archived by the BoD members and their deputies.

Effective yesterday, the trademark policy [1] has been updated to reflect that.
