[Fedora-legal-list] fwsnort vs. snort TM



Dear Fedora Legal,


I'd like to push fwsnort into Fedora, but I'm afraid there might be problem with snort TM.


http://www.snort.org/legal/snort-licensing/snort-trademark-guidelines


I have contacted fwsnort upstream and I was told they didn't have any approval from Sourcefire Marketing. But there are more projects that use term snort on freshmeat.net. Snort is released under GPL. fwsnort doesn't use any VRT licensed Snort rules and fwsnort had probably existed before snort TM.


Could you please help me to clean up this issue. thnx.


Peter.
