Hello.

hitori included trademark'ed name. (in description)
"Sudoku" is trademark'ed. (Japan and USA)

and, Meny "sudoku" trademark find. (Try TESS)

Note: I live in Japan. not US. and I am not a lawer.


URI:
 
http://trademarks.justia.com/779/34/sudoku-77934545.html
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudoku
http://tmsearch.uspto.gov/

If this is "nominative use", Its no problem.


Suggests:

1. Replace trademark'ed name.

2. Contact trademark owner.

3. Remove fedora repos.


Thanks.

Blocking FE-Legal, This is trademark problem.

I think this is fine, we have GNOME Sudoku as well.  I'll await a decision from Legal but I think we're OK here.  If not I'm willing to change the description.

Sudoku is a generic term in the US, not a trademark.
