    Default Zimbra Trademark

    I wasn't exactly sure where this should be posted, so if this needs to be moved then please do so.

    In the Zimbra Trademark and Branding FAQ, it has the following:

    Can I use "Zimbra" or a Zimbra product name in one of my website URLs?
    No. You may not use Zimbra or any other proper name associated with the Zimbra offering in a URL or domain. For instance 'www.zimbrahosting.com' is not allowed.

    In searching for some Zimbra information this evening I stumbled upon the following site:
    Host Zimbra - the open source alternative to Microsoft Exchange

    Seems like this would be a violation of the trademark unless this is "sponsored" by Zimbra? However, with the site design I would find that interesting...

    I think it's a licence violation.
    We have the same problem with several companies in France 8-(

    Confirmation from Zimbra that it is a violation. I didn't realize that it was so common. Thanks Klug.
