As an aside, the ZEA has also registered the Plone logo
as a trademark.  It is not our business, but came as a
surprise to us, that the Plone Foundation is not the
owner of the Plone trademark.

This is wrong.

In the early days of the Foundation, we had no proper legal representation and asked ZEA to represent us while setting up the legal entity for the

Plone Foundation therefore asked ZEA to assist us with their trademark experts to register the Plone trademark worldwide. This is perfectly clear from the publicly available Plone Foundation board meeting minutes.

They did the work on our behalf, and most excellently executed the worldwide registration of the mark. The trademarks were transferred fully to the
Plone Foundation as agreed.

As a result, Plone Foundation owns the worldwide trademark for Plone.
