Re: [opensuse-summit] openSUSE Summit Tickets List suggestions.
Andy, Robert, Stella and All,

It follows below Novell/SUSE Legal Dept response about using Mickey Mouse head
within an oSSum13 logo.

Everyone,

Kellie forwarded this message to me for review since I manage the trademark
programs for all four (4) business units.

That said, while the attached logo is very creative, I do not recommend
using the Mickey Mouse head or any Disney image. We have dealt with The Walt

Disney Company in the past and it is very difficult to receive permission to
use their images. And, if permission is granted, they usually require a
large licensing fee. The Walt Disney Company is very protective of their
intellectual property and are known for policing their trademarks, logos, and

images very carefully.

However, if you really want to use the Mickey Mouse head in the attached
manner, I would suggest trying to obtain permission from The Walt Disney
Company ahead of time.

Please let me know if you have any questions or need further assistance.

Thanks,
Sue "


I sent an email to nidia.caceros@xxxxxxxxxx (Disney Consumer Products) and
tips@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx requesting for
a permission to use it but honestly, I don't think they will allow us to use
without paying a fee. That's bad since I really
liked that idea... :(

With that said, Andy, please can you create a new oSSum13 to add in the ticket
description?

Then, after replacing the Disney logo with yours, I'll ask Stella to make the
tickets available in OSEM.

Regards,

-Gilson

I like it too, but definitely would run this through legal before
publishing.

Disney in particular is ferocious about protecting their copyrights.

Just my $0.02

Thanks,

yep.. we gotta use images carefully with the copyright laws.

What about the attached logo? I'll let Andy work on it since he is the
specialist but it's fun messing around with gimp.

Thanks all.

I forgot to remove the Greek theme so, please, disregard my last email.

Darren gave an excellent suggestion about trying to mix the oSSum13 logo
with a Mickey Mouse image to
to make sure people will know the event will be in Orlando, FL.


Specifically to put Mickey Mouse ears on Geeko. I assume that would be
OK
from a copyright point of view.

Andy, what you think?

Hi all,

I just used that same image we had for oSC13 and changed the title to
oSSum13.

Please, check the attached png file and let me know what you you think.

It's a png file and 100x100 as the SUSE web shop manager asked for.

Hi All,

I got good news.

The SUSE Marketing team is giving us 100 SUSE back packs to be used
as

a gift for the people who decide to contribute purchasing a ticket
to
help us out.

This is great. :)


I would suggest starting the ticket price around $30,00 since the
cost

of the back pack is $26 but I'm open to suggestions since this is
the
first
time I'm helping with openSUSE Summit.

Lets stick to the $50 ticket price for individuals and $200 for the
"Company tickets" ($200 == 5 professional i.e. $50 tickets).

Gilson can you please talk with Jennifer and get the links into the
SUSE



shop.

Andy, please incorporate a sentence or two about the professional
tickets into the news.o.o article

Done!


Gilson, once the ticktes are in the shop let me know the inks and
I'll

add something to summit.o.o

As we will not sell 100 tickets, lets come up with a couple of
games, to



allow people to win 3 or 4 of these back packs.

We could have a scavenger hunt and a trivia quiz. What else? I'll
start


two separate threads for this topic.

Thanks,
Robert

Hey guys, I see that the suggested image is catching on some fire and I
would go for that all in only after Disney is notified of this
derivative work. As Peter says Disney is known for being "ferocious"
about their trademarks and logos and you cannot use them lightly. If
there is written consent from Disney's marketing then I could work on it
and get it ready for the webshop.
