On August 14th at 5 pm UK time the name ‘osCommerce’ became the registered trademark of eCommerce Ventures Ltd (owners and operators of the new osCommerce Project). It is not due for renewal until 2019.
This registration is valid within the United Kingdom, but it is also the only instance world-wide of a legally registered ‘osCommerce’ trademark. We are now entitled to be notified of any attempt by anyone else to register the name ‘osCommerce’ as a trademark elsewhere in the world.
This will allow us to proceed now to officially licence the use of our trademark, and ends the confusion over who is and is not entitled to legaly [sic] use the name osCommerce.
We shall be in touch officially with the owner of this forum about continued use of the name “Club osCommerce”.
