"Oracle's trademark on the popular Hudson open-source project
doesn't exist. At least for now.
"Oracle claimed that it acquired the Hudson trademark with its
purchase of Sun Microsystems. But a well-placed former Sun
Microsystems employee has contacted The Reg to say that Sun took an
"explicit decision" not to apply for a trademark on the name
Hudson. A search of the US Patent and Trademark Office's website
throws up 623 trademarks for Hudson for many things, but not for
the project Oracle owns.
"On Wednesday, we reported how Oracle's trademark claim has put
added strain on Oracle's relationship with devs outside the company
and in the open source world."
