Quanta Trademark

Postby Derek_Stewart » Sat Feb 05, 2022 2:47 pm

Hi,

I forgot the Quanta Web site address, so did a Google web search for Quanta, the first hit was:

https://www.quantamagazine.org

Which to be the same name as Quanta for the Sinclair QL.

Did the Quanta comittee register the Quanta name?

Is the above web site in contravention of copyright with Quanta?


Regards,

Derek

Even if QUANTA has a trademark it would have surrendered those rights by not "actively defending" them.

The only area that might cover it is if QUANTA magazine acquired and maintained an ISSN.

The web site is not working, they must be having another party.

Brings back memories of discovering that NESQLUG is now the New England SQL User Group :-(

Did you just call QUANTA "parochial?!"

No, they have copied nothing from Quanta so cannot breach their copyright!
