Dear Sir or Madam

I act for Linus Torvalds, and I am writing to you about your use of the trade mark "Linux". This is not a letter of demand, but rather a request for your assistance, and an attempt to inform or remind you of the rights and obligations associated with the use of the trade mark "Linux".

For further information please refer to the attached PDF letter.

Yours faithfully,
