The complexity and novelty of the titles has hit rock bottom. Oh well. Here's Vidreview1:
- The anecdotes were humorous, and helped reinforce the main points of the talk.
- I feel like the use of a trademark policy was more clear in the video than the written
- I was on the fence / confused why a FOSS project needs to trademark things, but
the example about Evergreen gave a clear
- Not specific to the talk, but some of the questions were too quiet, and the
slides were occasionally difficult to see. Luckily they were posted here.
- Some of the content was redundant to the chapter we just read.
- ORANGE SHIRT GUY STOP JIGGLING YOUR FOOT!
- If common law trademarks can be enforced, what's the point of registering?
- Are there downsides to trademarking / registering trademarks?
- If you use a name frequently without the "™", can you "go back" and enforce
it if you start using the "™" with it?
- I can't quite decide if this is a good reinforcement of the content of the reading, or
is just reduntant information with a smattering of funny stories. While I
did get good examples of the benefits of trademarking in FOSS projects, it
seems like the only real use is shutting down the distribution of malicious
/ backdoored versions of your software. Regardless, it was relatively entertaining, informative, and decently paced.
