Dears Sirs, We are the project managers for the opensource portal CPG-Nuke. We have highly modified phpnuke to be safe fast and secure as well as a host of bug fixes and new features. You can checkout our features at our site htp://cpgnuke.com/ which is running the latest version from our CVS. The reason we are writing to you is that we planned on calling this release of our content management system "CPG-Nuke 9.0 OpenSpirit". After a web search we found that you are claiming trademark on this name and ask your permission use this as a subname of our release, our software will be continued to be called CPG-Nuke but the release will be named OpenSpirit. We thank you for your time,...
We received your request for permission to use the "OpenSpirit" name for your software, but we must deny your request. We have a U.S. trademark for OpenSpirit (Registration No. 2884603, first use 1998) which is used for our suite of software products. Therefore, we are very concerned that any other software product using the OpenSpirit name would create potential confusion in the marketplace. I would appreciate if you would confirm that you have received my e-mail and that you will change the name of your software to something other than "OpenSpirit." This will avoid us having to get our attorneys involved to send a more formal letter. We do appreciate that you contacted us early on in the process. Yours truly, Dan Piette President and CEO OpenSpirit Corp.

Dragon Fly: You are the quite messenger and harbinger of order, leaving in your wake the well thought out systems of filing codes and protocols that only you fully understand. Your nature is basically utilitarian and you know that efficiency is only achieved by repetition, attention to detail, and discipline. You love to see how many things you can do quickly and well and at all times you can bring your spot light vision and superb mind to the given matter at hand. You love routine, and believe you and others function better within them.
