Chinese User Group and our site for promotion of Fedora in our China.
These days, as I have seen there are more and more Chinese people
keeping focusing on the launching of Fedora 15, I also found that there
are so many people who focusing on Fedora also keep active on Chinese
twitter of Sina.com
. That is why I went to register an account for our
Local Chinese twitter on Sina.com
has gathered more than millions of
Chinese people from different kinds of fields. It is the most famous
Chinese local twitter site. Everyone here could go to see that site with
Now, the problem I met is that I need to show one document or a
introduction letter to verification Dept.of Sina twitter that our Fedora
Chinese User Group and our site is under the lead of official Fedora
project(say in another way is that we are a official group of Chinese
support maintain). By this, we can pass their verification and get the
symbol "V" on our Sina twitter account which means that this Sina
twitter account had been confirmed by Sina official and it is true.
Additionally, the Sina twitter account with symbol "V" will attract more
fans to come and focus their news.
I am looking forward that if anyone here could help me to provide such
document to help us pass the verification of Sina twitter. Thank you
very much for helping our Fedora promotion work.
Please reply or contact me (cnblue#fedoraproject.org
) ASAP if you can
help.Thanks all of you again.

I believe there's a potential trademark issue here, assuming you would
want to use the Fedora name and trademarks to identify the site. I
believe that's the origin of the Sina request. They want to ensure
that the use of the Fedora name is officially sanctioned by the Fedora
Project itself. These trademark matters are handled by our Fedora
Legal team. From what I can see the minimum requirements would be:
(1) Check that this effort has been discussed and agreed by Chinese
Ambassadors. There's no reason to doubt this has happened, but a
reference would be helpful.
(2) A trademark license agreement, as held by other domain owners that
use the trademarks similarly. Jared, is this email sufficient to
start those wheels rolling? Or should this be forwarded to
the legal list or advisory-board?
