>Dear Chris,
>On reading this article:
>it is clear that you, as an officer of the Mozilla organisation, are
>freely using the name "Firebird" to refer to the Mozilla lightweight
>browser. We remind you most strongly of the undertaking by to
>refrain from using this name in public and to make all efforts to remove
>all references to "Firebird" except as an internal codename, as "Mozilla
>Firebird". This was supposed to have been effected by the middle of
>August, 2003.
>Far from observing any sign of action in this regard, we continue to see
>members of the Mozilla organisation publicly using the name as if you had
>established some right to it.
>The undertaking to correct Mozilla's wrongful adoption of the name of
>another open source project is not being honoured. We urge you to take
>positive action to correct the situation.
