You know, usually when an  organization (such as TDF) is legally owned by  
another  organization …

I know it is difficult to understand if you're not in  (german) legal
affairs: TDF once fonded as "Stiftung" (=foundation) will be  on it's own
right and nor belong to not been owned by nobody but itself. What  we see
now for transitional purposes is the solution of the "hen  and
egg"-problem: You'll need a founder to found a foundation - and that  is

For whatever reason, no one seemed to get the point I was making in that e-mail, 
so I will respond once and leave it -

I was not saying that TDF does not exist, or anything else.
I was making the observation that TDF's website & materials make little mention 
of the fact that FroDeV is involved.
Therefore, to help reduce the comments by those that _do_ make that claim it 
would be beneficial for TDF to update its website to make reference to the 
existing legal status in the normal fashion of listing FroDeV and TDFs relation 
with it in the little section where the copyright/trademarks/etc are all 
mentioned on every page on the TDF website.

Again, just $0.02
