Debian got access to the Debian.Community domain

Debian won a lawsuit to defend its intellectual property of the name against the author of the Debian.Community project. This domain will be owned by the Debian Project as of July 29th. Previously, developer Daniel Pocock has blogged about his criticisms of the project, as well as insider information from debian-private mailing lists.

From Debian's side, the hearings at the World Intellectual Property Organization were attended by experts from the Debian project, experts from the non-profit organization SPI (Software in the Public Interest), and representatives from the Debian.ch organization. They proved that the author of the Debian.Community project infringed the rights to use the Debian trademark registered in the US in 1999.

Pocock decided not to give up and registered a new site called suicide.fyi to continue his publications, where he continued to criticize Debian. Pocock also maintains another site, WeMakeFedora.org, where he posts his thoughts on criticism of this project as well. In March of this year, Red Hat attempted to take away the WeMakeFedora.org domain from him under the guise of trademark infringement, but then the court ruled that Pocock was using the Fedora trademark in good faith for non-commercial purposes.

Pocock was previously a Fedora and Debian contributor. He was involved in the maintenance of a number of packages. Some time ago, he began to conflict with some representatives of the community of developers of these projects. For his actions, Pocock has been banned from community discussion boards and banned from projects such as Debian, Fedora, FSF Europe, Alpine Linux, and FOSDEM.
