My advise is that Haiku Inc. ask JPBE.net to rectify the trademark
violation ASAP by stopping the distribution of Basho until it is redone
to comply.

If Haiku is serious about enforcing its trademarks, this is the firm
signal to send to both JPBE.net and the community at large.

I'm currently out of state, using a handheld for email and over a hundred mails behind. So my apologies if this has been already addressed.

A week or so ago urias or Ryan mentioed that Haiku Inc is indeed working on this. Just in case anyone doesn't realize, haiku Inc is run by volunteers who are spread across the globe and simply are not capable of devoting 24x7 to these tasks. As mentioned in the past, it takes a few days for ideas and responses to be reviewed. On top of that, takes time for the other party to respond.

This is a sheer fact of reality, there simply is not enough funds to hire one or more people to actually work for haiku inc -- either as an assistant to carry out tasks or as a full time developer

There has been a few exchanges with shinta so far. Right now I don't want to comment on it other than to say that shinta isn't as responsive as I would personally like. This email is from me as an individual.

So please Jorge, stop insinuating that nothing is being done to resolve this. I understand that Haiku INc hasn't given a status update, a resolution notice, etc. But until there is something substantial I personally don't see a need to continually say "we're working on it.' Eventually the community may be called to action or informed that everything is peachy. I do indeed appreciate your attempts to help but I feel that asserting assumptions about what has or has not been done does not help.
