But it shouldn't matter. O'Reilly aren't copyrighting the use of a platypus in connection with Perl.

    You mean Trademark, and it really depends on the domain they hold the Trademark for (if they hold a Trademark). If it is something like "In connections with PHP or MySQL." then there will be many Perl users that are on shakey ground if they use DBD::MySQL.

    but IANAL

      Right, trademark.

      O'Reilly put the following text on their copyright page:

      The association between the image of a camel and the topic of Perl is a trademark of O'Reilly & Associates, Inc.

      That means that we are free to use the image of a camel in association with the topic of windsurfing without fear of infringing on the trademark.

      but IANAL either.
