No, it wasn't meant that way. Sorry...

The conversation ended with my question if putting the trademark sign
note to the site's imprint would be sufficient, which remained
unanswered. Later you posted the new draft, which did not address that
concern at all. Nobody posted a comment to the draft for about a week,
which actually irritates me, but there seems to be some kind of consensus.

If I am the only one who is having concerns with the "Permitted Use"
section, the problem is obviously me and not the TLA.

It's section 4 "Permitted Use", along with the Attachment C. I tried to
explain it in the thread "Red Hat Comments on License Agreement".

No, it was exactly that question... :-)
