Subject: Re: [emergency-adopt-docs] CAP Icon Question from Australian CAPProject

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you on this, Gregory,

We approved the CAP Logo/Symbol at the EM TC meeting yesterday, but I 
forgot to bring up this specific issue. However, I will put this on the 
agenda for the C&D SC Meeting. That is next Tuesday, at our normal time. 
If you want to have the meeting time slot changed to the 4:00 p.m. 
Eastern (US) time, please reply to that effect and I will see if we can 
arrange it. It might need to be postponed by a week, but we can decide 
that on this list.

However, preliminarily, I don't think we can guarantee that use of the 
CAP Logo/Symbol will mean that EDXL-DE is used as the distribution 
mechanism unless we change our decision not to pursue formal 
copyright/trademark status through Official OASIS action.

We specifically chose to go the non-copyright/trademark route, and I 
think this applies to this specific issue, too. We simply don't have the 
personnel hours and organizational support based on this decision to 
enforce this kind of requirement. However, we certainly can ask those to 
whom we announce the availability of the CAP Logo/Symbol to use EDXL-DE 
or recommend it strongly.
