But the brand name "FOSS4G" should be kept clean of such potential
confusion, this is why I believe that we should always think of FOSS4G
as a real trademark brand (no need to register it (tm) though - which
was discussed years ago in other threads). But I do believe that we
should acquire the rights for the foss4g.* domains eu and us but only to
point them back to the main FOSS4G site. It will be so much harder to
claim them back from anyone once they got them with malicious intentions.

So Alex, can you please register .eu and .us for OSGeo asap and point
them to foss4g.org (we can later still proliferate if required).

In my opinion this type of decision should pertain to the marketing
group, what do you think?


I don't have the keys to the DNS registration stuff so I'll pass that to
those in SAC who do.
