There is a company in the UK that is trying to trademark the use of the term "Python" for all software, services, servers... pretty much anything having to do with a computer.........


What can you do?
1. Do you work for a company that uses Python? Are in the EU, do you hire in the EU, or do you have an office in the EU? Could you write a letter on company letterhead that we can forward to our EU counsel? 

We would want: 


  1. just a brief description of how Python is used at your company, 
  2. how your company looks for and recognizes "Python" as only coming from the PSF, and 
  3. your view that another company using term Python to refer to services, software, and servers would be confusing
This doesn't need to be long - just a couple of paragraphs, but we would want any description of how you use Python for software, web hosting, Internet servers, VPNs, design and development of computer hardware or software, hosting websites, renting servers (like Openstack), or backup services. For those who are interested the specific class descriptions are at the bottom of this message. [1][2]

You can send a PDF copy of the letter to psf-trademarks@python.org

2. Do you have, or know of, anything that was published in the EU and uses "Python" to refer to Python-the-language? Can we get copies, pictures, or scans? This includes:

  • Books
  • Pamphlets
  • Conference programs or talks
  • Job listings
  • Magazines or other publications
  • Prospectuses
You can send a PDF scan of the materials to psf-trademarks@python.org

3. You can also help protect the Python intellectual property with financial support.

Since the costs of a trademark opposition are in the range of tens of thousands of dollars, we will need to find a way to refinance the legal costs of the opposition.

Finally resolved. :)

 Thanks veber.

The trademark of Python will remain free after a copyright issue was resolved due to a withdrawn request by hosting solution company Veber.
