Can I be the first to call bull on this?
"There is a US process and an EU process and I don't have the details of where we are within those processes."
Yet he thinks he knows where they are well enough to call on the (non-existant?) trademark?
I wonder if he's aware that trademarks granted can be challenged in the "EU process"?
Really, you start to wonder about the logic process going on inside these people's heads. This largely pointless exercise is just going to cost them money, generate a whole heap of bad feeling, and what's the point considering the project can be forked and renamed (if it hasn't already - any sane devs might be considering ditching close ties to a company acting in this matter). How can they possibly stand to gain from this? Can anybody explain?
