no, it is not unreasonable to expect some kind of response, but we 
shouldn't overlook that there have *been* various responses. If someone 
is setting up a small business trading in the Ubuntu ecosystem what you 
need to do is fill out the trademarks form and ask if they don't care 
about your use of the brand.


Once you have a reply to this you can forget that Canonical exists, 
unless you want to pass them a juicy public sector or corporate 
deployment lead. They have no further interest in you, and you have no 
need of them.

Trademark responses can be a bit slow. This is being looked into. The 
thing is not to ask other questions, the only thing you want from 
Canonical is confirmation that your use of the trademark is fine.
