Canonical contacted us last may, but the email was sent to Rashid, and
either he didn't get it or didn't forward it  :(

so let's go for a new name!

Dear Mehdi,

Thank you for contacting us.

I have attached below the original response I sent to a member of your
team with regard to the request to use Ubuntu Muslim Edition.  I got
this name from your website.

As you can see, my email was sent in May 2008.

Unfortunately we cannot allow you to use Ubuntu Muslim Edition. The word
Edition has a very specific meaning for the Ubuntu project and we do not
allow different projects to refer to editions.

The attached email outlines our position in more detail.

I am sorry for any work that you will have to do to change the name, but
as I said, I did write to you last year about this.

I trust that you understand our position in this regard.

Kind regards,

Michelle

To whom it may concern,

I hope that I am contacting the right person in this regard, but if not,
please let me know who I should contact. I work as part of the Trademark
team at Canonical.

While we greatly appreciate your enthusiasm for Ubuntu, and appreciate
the time and effort you devote to the project, I'm afraid there are
trademark related issues with your project. We've tried to define a
reasonable trademark policy that allows people to customise Ubuntu, and
use the marks to promote the project, while at the same preserving the
integrity of the marks.  In case you haven't seen it, that policy is at

 http://www.ubuntu.com/aboutus/trademarkpolicy

There are trademark issues with the Ubuntu Muslim Edition and to the url
ubuntume.

In terms of our trademark policy, we do not allow the use of the word
Edition. Edition is a special word in the Ubuntu project and calling
something an Edition implies that this is part of the Ubuntu project,
which is not the case and is therefore misleading.  We certainly
encourage people to make custom versions of Ubuntu, and we have
established the "remix" concept and terminology to allow use of the
trademark if the changes are minimal or include only software from the
Ubuntu repositories.

We also do not allow the use of Ubuntu in a url as again this implies an
official link to the Ubuntu project which is misleading. In this case
there is an obvious clash with our own UME, which is confusing.

Again, I'd like to stress that we appreciate your enthusiasm for Ubuntu,
and that the basic activities of what you are doing is fine - it's one
of the freedoms and powers provided by open source software.  But I'm
afraid that using the Ubuntu name and logo (in product name, on website,
etc) to refer to your own product/project simply doesn't work and needs
to be changed.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Kind regards,


Michelle
