Excellent and encouraging analysis from Robin here. Scott McNealy has been saying for years that net-connected devices are the new world after Microsoft and the PC, and the time has come.

Correct title; largely wrong-headed article. There's no doubt that some reform is needed of trademark law, and I've been raising the issue in conference addresses for several years, but this guy's suggestion that Mozilla, Canonical and Red Hat are doing something wrong doesn't bear much examination if you've spent any time understanding the minefield created by the various takes on trademark law around the world. The most common error: only considering the law for a single country.
