Today I received a very polite email via my Drupal.org contact page from a member of the Drupal Association requesting that I remove the Drupal Association from the list of clients on my company website, as they have no record of doing business with us. That is correct - we were hoping to build the Drupal TV website, but that didn't happen.
The strange part was that I was also asked not to use the phrase "Drupal Support" on our website, but instead use something like "Company X support for Drupal". The D.A. member acknowledged that I mentioned that Drupal is a trademark registered to Dries Buytaert, but apparently that isn't enough.
I did a quick Google search for "Drupal Support" and found many "offenders", as you might expect. The first offender was Acquia, the company created by Dries Buytaert. Does this mean that Acquia is the only company that should be able to use the phrase "Drupal Support", because Dries owns the trademark?
Has anyone else received a similar email from the Drupal Association, or am I being singled-out?
Is the Drupal Association conducting Internet sweeps for copyright infringement? I'm not even sure how the Drupal Association noticed this today - the D.A. logo has been on our site for the past two years.
