Hello.

gnome-sudoku 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.


Suggests:

1. Rename software names.

2. Contact trademark owner.

3. Remove fedora repos.


Thanks.

Blocking FE-Legal, This is trademark problem.

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