Today, Peter Lamont, CEO of Miro, signed a legal deed granting to the Mambo Foundation the rights and interests in the Mambo name, logo, and associated trademarks.
The grant is significant for two reasons: First the transfer gives the Mambo Foundation the legal rights to control the use of the Mambo name and logo and all rights in the underlying code of the Mambo Open Source CMS. Second, the terms of the grant require that the Mambo Foundation keep the Mambo codeset Open Source, that is, at no time is the Foundation permitted to convert the Mambo CMS into a more restrictive license.
