Python Settles Trademark Dispute

Filed under

Legal

The Python Software Foundation (PSF) have announced they have reached a settlement with POBox Hosting Ltd of the UK over their trademark application for the term 'Python' in connection with cloud hosting and their application for a figurative trademark incorporating the word "Python". While the PSF own the trademark for Python within the United States, it did not have an equivalent filing within the European Union.

Inexplicably unaware of the importance of the Python language to their customers, POBox Hosting had been in an escalating dispute with the PSF -- a non-profit association with minimal staff -- until the matter became public.
