    I don't know, but I just emailed The Perl Foundation to make them aware of it...

    Update: Although I guess the copyright trademark (thanks LanX) on the name itself would probably be Larry Wall's?

      One needs a trademark (which the foundation has) not a copyright.

      Next question if there is a possible overlap of context.

      If two brands are sold in totally different areas like "cat food" and "sports cars" it can become difficult. Also depending on legislation.

      I read that a Polish lemonade named "John Lemon" had to change its name after Yoko Ono interfered.

      Question is if Perl it's a sufficiently big "pop star".

      And the possibility to smoke Perl on a PyCon shouldn't be under estimated... ;)

      I'll go and buy popcorn. This is going to be interesting if the foundation choses to interfere :-)

      You can lead your users to water, but alas, you cannot drown them.

        Well, VinsWorldcom made a good point here that there are/were actually a bunch of trademarks on things called "Perl"... apparently including hair nets and "direct and mail order sales of sausages and luncheon meats" :-) (ok, at least those two are expired/abandoned)

    Their product is just smoke, while Tim Toady's perl is smoke AND mirrors. Clearly Foggily superior.

    There's some pretty good marketing material at this site. For example, Our Story shares their reason for choosing the name PERL:

    We wanted the name to reflect who we are and what we strive to be: Compact, Precious, Elegant. It's so simple it seems inevitable. Like shucking for pearls there's nothing easy about finding a Pearl, but for those who do, it's a special reward in itself.

    Followed by six reasons you should choose PERL:

    • Beautiful
    • Simple
    • Intelligent
    • Delicious
    • Different
    • Easy

    The only nitpick I have is the case they chose for the name PERL. Apart from that ... looks good and keep up the good work! :)

    Heh

    OUR STORY

    PERL was designed with a vision in mind. To create the ultimate vaping experience for everyday people. A device where simplicity, beauty and technology meet. As a group of quirky creatives and vape enthusiasts, creating the PERL wasn’t a choice. It was a necessity.

    Well let's hope the trademark was secured. .. :)

      Let's see:

      "PERL was designed with a vision in mind. To create the ultimate coding experience for everyday people. A language where simplicity, beauty and technology meet. As a group of quirky creatives and coding enthusiasts, creating the PERL wasn’t a choice. It was a necessity.

      Yeah, pretty much a direct rip-off.

      UPDATE: Perl Trademarks

        Uh oh

        We might have some trouble two versions down the road from now...

    Let's see if Python follows suit. But, you probably have to breathe a specific (one) way (to do it!), or it won't recognize when you last exhaled, and it stops working...

    BTW, this is probably just a typo: Mother of Pearl. Else we should seriously consider to inform the Spanish Inquisition ASAP.

      Seriously? You should be ashamed of yourself. What an A-hole

        Coming from one, your sentiment means a great deal to me. I'm honored.

        $PM = "Perl Monk's";
        $MCF = "Most Clueless Friar Abbot Bishop Pontiff Deacon Curate Priest";
        $nysus = $PM . ' ' . $MCF;
