"I talked to Bob Young on Saturday, May 22 at Linux Expo. He met me at the Linux Journal booth, and we walked to a quiet place in a nearby plaza. Getting off the showroom floor turned out to be the real trick, as we were often stopped by people wanting to shake his hand, ask him a question or just tell him how wonderful Red Hat is."

"Margie: That makes sense--how about the poster for LinuxCare?

"Bob: That's a funny story, but one we take very seriously. In the end, the only thing Red Hat owns are our trademarks--we don't own any intellectual property--so we have to defend our trademarks very carefully because we can't afford to have them end up in the public domain. Legally, if you don't protect your trademark, you can lose it."
