Yes I do. And, I wasn't suggesting that someone should use the VCF
name. I was simply suggesting that you might just be polite and ASK
people not to do it, rather than threaten them in some way.
Oh, and it bothers me when people working towards the same goal (a
classic computer expo type event) quibble over little things like
trademarks. Can't we get past that, and back to something productive
and useful? So Sellam doesn't want you to use "VCF" without his
consent. Pick some other name and be done with it.
