Nagios Trademark Statement

Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Nagios Enterprises posted a blogpost at their community site, accusing me, Julian Hein the owner and managing director of NETWAYS to have taken away their Nagios trademark and that they want it back. While some of the facts in the blogpost are true, some assumptions are not, some are taken out of their context and some may be just a result of misunderstandings. At first I did not want to react, but the blogpost and the Twitter messages make us look very bad. So I would like to explain the events that lead to the problem from our point of view. I would prefere to comment on this directly in the Nagios Community Blog, but I could not register an account. Additionally our IP addresses have been blocked so I cannot access the site from our office. So I think a real discussion in the blog is unwanted.

"First of all, I have signed all the transfer papers that I received from Nagios Enterprises and sent them back. I had to removed two lines from the text concerning liabilities where I have no idea what they could mean to me. I'm not a lawyer, my main language is German and I have no knowledge about US law. Of course I left everything concerning a transfer intact, so I hope that will settle the situation soon. See the document here."
