The Python Software Foundation (PSF) has announced
that the trademark on "Python" is at risk in the European Union. A company called Veber has applied for a community trademark on Python "for all software, services, servers... pretty much anything having to do with a computer
". The PSF is looking for help in opposing the application: "According to our London counsel, some of the best pieces of evidence we can submit to the European trademark office are official letters from well-known companies 'using PYTHON branded software in various member states of the EU' so that we can 'obtain independent witness statements from them attesting to the trade origin significance of the PYTHON mark in connection with the software and related goods/services.' We also need evidence of use throughout the EU.
