The Trademark Team is looking for volunteers to join this happy team. Protecting the Joomla! trademark is important work to the project. We cannot allow Joomla! to be misused or diluted in any way. In order to accomplish this, we have a ticket system to allow people to report abuse or submit to receive permission to use the Joomla name or logo in marketing, websites, domains, etc. We need volunteers to help work with tickets, review and analyse submissions, and investigate reports. We have meetings periodically that one would need to attend. They are currently irregular and are held on Glip. You do not need to have trademark or legal experience (but it is a plus if you have it). What you do need to have is the willingness to check email daily, answer tickets as they come in (with other team members), log into Glip on a regular basis, and have a keen eye so as to notice things that are out of compliance and do something about them. If interested please apply or write us at trademark@opensourcematters.org and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
