As a consequence of Resolution 12-36 of the Internet Society Board of Trustees the logo of the Internet Society is now removed from this website. The Internet Society asked to do so in a letter sent on November 21st 2012:
We kindly request you to refrain from future use of the ISOC Trademarks in communication of the ECC (either on the website or in direct communications), as this may cause confusion in the furthering of the message and mission of the
Internet Society through our Chapters and our Europe Regional Bureau. In the same vein, we would appreciate efforts to avoid any public confusion about who ECC represents.
A copy of this letter is being forwarded to chapters who are currently members of the ECC. The Internet Society continues to support those Chapters through its Membership and Services Department and its Regional Bureau.
The trademarks involved are:
- CTM mark number 000560573 “ISOC” (word) registered in classes 16, 41 and 42 of the International Nomenclature.
- CTM mark number 001509488 “INTERNET SOCIETY” (figurative) registered in classes 16, 41 and 42 of the International Nomenclature.
The letter was sent to the current Chair and Secretary and two other individual Internet Society members.
Any mention of either ISOC or Internet Society on this website is in respect with the trademarks of the Internet Society and is only mentioned on this site for reasons of historical accuracy about events and actions in the past.
The Secretary of the ECC.
