Re: [802SEC] Re: IEEE-SA CLARIFICATION ON TRADEMARK(TM) AND REGISTERED TRADEMARK(R) USAGE
No I didn't see this ahead of time.
Further, I believe that it is technically incorrect.
However, we should let Bob Grow be the interface on this.
It is my understanding that:
"> IEEE 802(R) Working Group"
would not be correct in the trademark sense even if it were correct in the
organizational sense, which it is not. There is no Working Group for IEEE
Std 802(R). It is a work product of the 802.1 Working Group.
My understanding is that the registered trademark should only be asserted
against a "product".
It is my belief that the 802.1 Working Group would take offense at being
considered a "product" by the IEEE.
