Hello.

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.


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

2. Contact trademark owner.

3. Remove fedora repos.


Thanks.

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