Description mejiko 2013-10-17 10:35:34 UTC
Hello.

Texlive included trademark'ed name. (In software name and 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.


Affected Packages:

texlive-sudoku.noarch
texlive-sudokubundle.noarch
texlive-sudoku-doc.noarch
texlive-sudokubundle-doc.noarch
texlive-crossword.noarch (In description)

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


Suggests:

1. Replace trademark'ed name.

2. Contact trademark owner.

3. Remove fedora repos.

Blocking FE-Legal, this is trademark problem.

Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2014-01-22 22:19:45 UTC
Sudoku is a generic term in the US, not a trademark. Closing as NOTABUG.
