Koha Trademark Case Won by NZ Trust
From Radio New Zealand:
In 2011 software company Liblime attempted to adapt and trademark a free software search system developed by the Horowhenua Library Trust 14 years ago – named Koha.
The trust and Catalyst IT, a company in Wellington which specialises in free and open source software, challenged the move.
Two years later, developer Chris Cormack said Catalyst was advised late on Wednesday it has won the fight.
