During my stay at EuroPython I learned that eighteen
months ago (and without Zope Corporation's knowledge or
consent) Zope Europe Association (ZEA) registered a
trademark consisting of the Cirlce-Z (the stylized Z
surrounded by a circle) followed by the word ZOPE
(hereinafter "Circle-Z-Zope").  The mark they
registered is identical to the corporate logo used by
Zope Corporation.

At the Zope Europe Association Web site
(http://www.zope-europe.org/), the logo is 3 cubes with a
3-dimensional look.  Has Zope Europe Association registered the
Circle-Z-Zope trademark but is not using it?

Apparently. Go to:


and enter "Zope" in the "Holder Name" field and click "Search".

You will see 5 results.  The first is for the Zope Corporation
registration of the name "Zope", registered in May 2004.

The next four results are for ZEA's registrations of the Zope
and Plone marks, with logos (2 each, for different sets of
countries) registered in July and September of 2004.

Zope Europe Association?

Nope, the addresses match.
