Electronic Frontier Foundation Goes After Mark Shuttleworth and Canonical

The EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) usually reserves its criticism for important events, but Canonical and Mark Shuttleworth have been targeted before on several occasions. “Over the past few days, EFF and one of our staff technologists, the talented Micah Lee, have had an illuminating back and forth with Canonical Ltd over the use of the Ubuntu mark. While we don’t believe that Canonical has acted with malice or intent to censor, its silly invocation of trademark law is disturbing. After all, not everyone has easy recourse to lawyers and the ability to push back,” states the organization on its website.
