Description mejiko 2013-10-17 10:42:50 UTC

sudoku-savant included trademark'ed name.
"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.


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


1. Rename software names.

2. Contact trademark owner.

3. Remove fedora repos.

Blocking FE-Legal, This is trademark problem.

Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2014-01-22 19:31:50 UTC
Sudoku is a generic term in the US, not a trademark.
