Default Python Software Foundation in trademark fight in Europe

From http://h-online.com/-1804319

Quote:
The Python Software Foundation (PSF) is calling for help from companies in Europe to help with a trademark problem with a UK company. The PSF is the US-based non-profit charged with protecting the intellectual property surrounding the Python language. This is the first time that the PSF has engaged in any legal action regarding the Python name.

Or they could pick another snake. How about A. granulatus aka Little Filesnake? Sounds vaguely computer related. Then to replace the Jython name, they could pick another from the Acrochordidae family, the Java Wart Snake.

I am not a lawyer but if they would have taken action 13 years ago against the python.co.uk name registration, they would not have had these troubles.
