Easy one first - the site definitely needs to say 'Apache Lucene' when it refers to Lucene the ASF project rather than Lucene Consulting or Lucene in Action. It should also say Apache HTTP Server or Apache Web Server (whatever the name is this month) rather than just Apache.

Harder one - I don't think we'd be okay with a company named Lucene Consulting. It's not as if it's descriptive of the company - it offers much more than just consulting on Lucene. Plus there's the old caveat that if we don't defend against this trademark infringement then we can't defend the next one.

However, I might not understand how things work - apache.com seems to happily exist.

Hmm, are we OK with having companies naming themselves after ASF projects?

Would it be possible to add Lucene Consulting to the Specialized Solution
