Subject Question about project names.
Date Wed, 29 Dec 2004 02:22:28 GMT

I'm the author of MINA (Multipurpose Infrastructure for Network
Applications) subproject in Apache Directory project.  We are checking
our project names before releasing them.  I checked the name 'MINA',
and I found three trademark holders.  None of them are software or IT

I found two non-US companis whose names are 'Mina software' and 'MINA
systems' and Forth language interpreter called ''.

I want to know it would be OK if I use the name MINA.  I've been
thinking it is OK ecause MINA is just a girl's name and means 'south'
in Japanese.  It is also just a girl's name in South Korea.

Thanks in advance for helps.
