Description mejiko 2014-11-23 04:40:07 UTC

kbreakout included trademark problem.

"BREAKOUT" is trademark, It is non-free.



1. Rename this game.




2. Remove Fedora repos.

3. Contact Trademark owner.

Blocking FE-Legal, This is trademark problem.

Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2014-11-24 14:27:59 UTC
Yeah. We need to rename this one or remove it.

Comment 3 Than Ngo 2014-11-24 15:20:35 UTC
i think, we rename the game. which name should we rename? lbrickbuster2?

Comment 4 Tom "spot" Callaway 2014-11-24 15:23:16 UTC
No, kbreakout needs to be renamed. It can be anything that doesn't include the mark "breakout" or is confused for "breakout" (e.g. not "kreakout").

kbrickbuster would work, for example, but I leave it to you to come up with a name you're comfortable with, just let me know what you want to use and I'll give it a review.

Comment 5 Than Ngo 2014-11-24 15:29:10 UTC
KBrickbuster is fine for us.

Comment 6 Tom "spot" Callaway 2014-11-24 15:43:15 UTC
That name is clear to use. Just change any user visible references to kbreakout to "kbrickbuster" in the code and packaged files, then rename the package and tarball accordingly. (You can Provide/Obsolete the old name without issue).

if i understand correctly, i can use these in new specfile?
Obsoletes: kbreakout
Provides: kbreakout

Comment 8 Than Ngo 2014-11-25 17:44:15 UTC
Tom, i still see some "Breakout-like game.", "A breakout like game for KDE"
Do we have to replace "Breakout" string too?

Comment 9 Tom "spot" Callaway 2014-11-26 14:30:21 UTC
Yes. You cannot use "Breakout-like" (or use the Breakout mark in any way to describe the game).

You can use the Obsoletes/Provides though.

Comment 10 Than Ngo 2014-11-28 11:23:17 UTC
i uploaded the srpm and spec file, all *breakout* is now renamed to *brickbuster* in new kbrickbuster package.

Tom, could you please review it? 



Comment 11 Rex Dieter 2014-11-29 14:49:53 UTC
I don't think you actually need to rename the base package, ie, the .spec and Name: fields, and theoretically Source0 tarball can stay kbreakout (so we don't have to re-review and create a new git module).  

I think the Obsoletes/Provides ought to be versioned too, using something like:

Obsoletes: kbreakout < 4.13.3-2
Provides: kbreakout = %{version}-%{release}

Comment 12 Rex Dieter 2014-11-29 14:50:40 UTC
Oh nevermind, Tom did explicitly mention "then rename the package and tarball accordingly"

Comment 13 Than Ngo 2014-12-02 16:33:28 UTC
i added request for package review in bugzilla, it would be great if someone could review it. Thanks

Cleaning the needinfo on me here.
