No but companies that your PPMC members are employed by are. 

Those PPMC members are in a good position to make sure their employers are aware of and follow
ASF policies where needed. It's part of a (P)PMC duties to make sure branding, releases and
trademarks are correctly followed. [1] At the very least these PPMC members should be bringing
it to the attention of the PPMC for discussion on what to do. Ideally the companies involved
should be going to the PPMC to ask for feedback or review on this sort of content and releases.

Having un-voted on release candidates been made available to the general public with the projects
name on it is problematic in a number of ways.

That would be help. You can also just refer people to existing ASF policies.

As there are now several outstanding trademarks issue that would be appreciated. The original
issue the board brought to the incubator attention still has not been fully addressed. You
next report is not due for a few months, however you are welcome to make an out of band report.
Either way I'll need some information to include in the next incubator report due in a week
or so.
