Comment:
20:41 < wstein> On the other hand, if Tim Daly really is the trademark owner of axiom, can't he
20:41 < wstein> just tell us we can't use the name and that is that?
20:41 < cwitty> I don't think so.
20:41 < cwitty> He can tell us we can't call our product axiom.
20:42 < cwitty> He can probably tell us we can't call fricas axiom, which is closer to what we're doing.
20:43 < mhansen> cwitty: We're actually just calling whatever "axiom" command happens to be on the system.

  • Ticket #5111 – Description

    initial v3  
    1 Change axiom.py to fricas.py and the axiom command to fricas. 
     1Should we change axiom.py to fricas.py and the axiom command to fricas. 
    22
    3 This is more logical since the doctests test fricas not axiom.  Also, this has been specifically requested by Tim Daly -- the trademark owner on the name Axiom -- and I think it is best to respect his request.
     3'''For the change:''' This is more logical since the doctests test fricas not axiom.  Also, this has been specifically requested by Tim Daly -- the trademark owner on the name Axiom.
     4
     5'''Against the change:''' We have an *axiom* interface already.  The trademark on "Axiom" does not mean that we can't legally use the word for the command name in our program. Our interface to sage is an interface to axiom, fricas, etc.
