>>>> It has been brought to our attention that your website:

>>>> Ubuntu
>>>> logo on your website and Ubuntu word in your domain name. The 
>>>> Ubuntu logo
>>>> [1] and a screenshot of your website [2] are set out below.

>>> Intellectual

>>>> So, whilst we are very happy for you to write about Ubuntu, we request

>>>> To prove its point, the e-mail showed a screenshot of Lee's site 
>>>> with the
>>>> Ubuntu logo:
>>>> The policy Canonical pointed to does say that permission from the

>>>> is required to use "any Trademark in a domain name or URL or for

>>> the
>>>> name in his domain is "nominative

>>>> That new disclaimer reads as follows:
>>>> Disclaimer: In case you are either 1) a complete idiot; or 2) a

>>> or
>>>> 3) both, please be aware that this site is not affiliated with or

>>> So,

>>>> Canonical doesn't seem to have a problem with other websites using the
>>> word
>>>> Ubuntu in their domain names, such as "OMG!
>>>> Ubuntu!<http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/>,"
>>>> a news site that writes enthusiastically about the operating system.
>>>> Canonical's registered trademark doesn't specifically mention domain
>>> names,
>>>> but it claims broad rights over the word Ubuntu for use in
>>>> "Telecommunication, communication, and broadcasting services provided

>>>> "transmission of information, data, text, images, graphics, sound 
>>>> and/or
>>>> audio-visual material online, via the Internet or via other
>>> communications

>>>> We've contacted Canonical about the e-mail sent to Lee, but haven't

>>>> While Ubuntu's code is open source and free to everyone, Canonical

>>>> "in a more productive way."
>>>> The EFF has already sent a response to Canonical, in a letter from EFF
>>>> Staff Attorney Daniel Nazer. "While we appreciate the polite tone 
>>>> of your
>>>> letter, we must inform you that your request is not supported by
>>> trademark
>>>> law and interferes with protected speech," the letter says. "The 
>>>> website
>>>> criticizes Canonical Limited for certain features of Ubuntu that
