Hi Charles,

Thank you for your comments - don't be sorry! :) As I've mentioned
before this is for a very specific use and I am aware of other
developments regarding the trademark. Unfortunately I printed my labels
and put them on DVDs last night so these will go as-is.

I am not sure how else I can make clear this label (and DVD structure)
is my own other than the fact it's in my wiki space, has clear
attribution and licensing, and I have explained all the process to
create it publically.

I am following trademark developments closely and my label will change
accordingly either when I notice or when I am asked to (I have
subscribed relevant wiki pages too). I am not producing 3000 DVDs right
away! I am also limited by my own capacity to burn, print labels & stick
them on DVDs, manually. BTW I used the original fonts as indicated in
the branding page (which I had to trace back, translate licensing
information from Japanese and update in our own wiki).

Regarding my name, it's there precisely to indicate this is not
distributed by TDF and this production (~50 DVDs) will be
hand-distributed with a clear indication that I produced them myself (if
people don't get to read the whole text on the DVD). Of course I am also
promoting my services and bundling this with a (free) workshop.

I hope this clears up any misunderstandings. I also hope part of this
discussion is useful for other DVD distributors.

Cheers,
