vdr-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.


1. Rename software names. (NPG, SDG, etc...)

2. Contact trademark owner.

3. Remove fedora repos.

Blocking FE-Legal, This is trademark problem.
Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2014-01-22 10:10:24 EST
In the US, Sudoku is a generic term, not a registered trademark. Closing as NOTABUG.
