Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2847) Public Comment: Re:[office-comment] Java trademark (ODF pt 1, public review 1)

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2847?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=22297#action_22297 ] 

Michael Brauer commented on OFFICE-2847:

Dennis: This particular issue is just a comment to an older comment, and even that older comment was about a TM sign only. So, if you do not fine with the description of <draw:applet>, please submit a new issue for that and if ever possible, include a proposal.

If we start to change description of issues or to provide additional issues in comments, tracking issues will become very difficult. And in particular if we talk about public comments, it is important that our resolution matches the comment (and the comment in this case really is just a comment).

I will set this issue back to applied.

> """
> to remind everybody. 
> Java (including the applets) is open source. 
> With java I mean the specification, not a particular implementation that may or may not be proprietary. 
> 2010/2/6 Alex Brown <alexb@griffinbrown.co.uk>
> Dear all,
> The spec makes mention of "Java" as a registered trademark, when referring to Java applets. Java applets are nowhere defined in the text and no normative reference is provided.
> Sun says Java has a (TM) not an (R) http://www.sun.com/suntrademarks/index.jsp#J
> The ISO/IEC directives state:
> "Proprietary trade names (i.e. trade marks) for a particular product should as far as possible be avoided, even if they are in common use." (6.6.3)
> These provisions should be generalised to allow non-proprietary technology to be used.
> """
> However, we are using <applet> as [HTML4] does and I think we can hide behind W3C if there is a trademark issue (unlikely)  -- dh:2010-10-15
