In the next post after this one, I will be updating everyone on the latest happenings and what to expect from WebcamStudio. But first, I want to take a moment to call attention to a small New Zealand library under legal pressure from a company call LibLime. I will not be linking to them as I have no interest in doing them any favors. According to a post on the 21st of this month from the Koha Library Software Community, LibLime managed to somehow get their Trademark on the word "Koha " (meaning the New Zealand Māori custom of gift giving). Yes, these guys managed to Trademark a term ironically named for gift giving despite not even coming from the country where the term has an important meaning.
Other companies have pulled this sort of stupidity before and lost, the key here is that the Koha Library Software Community needs help with their legal fund. And because it's open source, this means us. This means it's up to us to stop Trademarks gone mad. As you can see in the comments at this link, the community is already beginning to respond -- this just leaves us to offer these guys a chance at a fair defense. Understand, if it can happen to that project, it can happen to other open source projects as well. So let's demonstrate that as a community, we're willing to come together to defend one another.
