Fri Feb 15, 2013 3:48 pm

There is an upcoming trademark problem for the name 'python' regarding the use in relation to computers and programming. The python foundation asks for help.
See here for info:

Is there anything we as raspberry pi user can do? I cannot believe that a company is out for such a bad press to get attention?

<Joke>We could start calling it 'Adder' or 'Slow-Worm'</Joke>

Worst case scenario: just chage the spelling - Pi-thon?

I expect the application will be defeated.
