Hi - I think that the Incubator should adjust the proposal process when a project comes in that has registered trademarks.
There are a few impacts to consider some of which may need to be private. (1) PODLINGNAMESEARCH may not be needed. (2) The IPMC and trademarks@ should want to understand what will need to be transferred and what the timing of the transfer(s) will be - either during onboarding or at graduation. We should be clear about what happens to the trademark if Incubation fails either with or without a release. (3) Existing domains are also something that should be on a proposal along with if these need to be continued or should be redirected. We need to be clear about what happens to domains if incubation fails. (4) I think these items would add some additional sections to the podling report. This is a discussion for Incubation only. What happens to domains and trademarks once a project is top-level is clearly out of scope. Regards, Dave
